Extreme heat for the rest of the month may set records in a few places in the Southeast while others see some relief from an increase in thunderstorms. A break from the heat is underway for some west of the Mississippi but it will get quite hot again for most there now through the weekend.
After a brief respite for parts of Texas and Oklahoma, the heat will rebuild later this week into this weekend. Fronts pushing into the Southeast will give relief for some, but only so far south. The tropical Atlantic remains quiet, the East Pacific busy.
Much of the South gets a break from the miserable heat this week. However, any break back in Oklahoma and Texas will be short-lived. The East Pacific tropics will get less busy for a time this week. The Atlantic probably will stay quiet but things will get a little more interesting.
The heat wave will go on in Oklahoma and parts of Texas for several more days but it will ease some in the Southeast next week. Florida, the Gulf Coast and Texas will see more typical summer heat and humidity. The East Pacific tropics remain very active but the Atlantic is still quiet for now. Maybe there will be signs of life in the Atlantic at the end of the month.
For most of the South, there will be no real break from the intense heat for the next week. A few areas, such as Florida, the Gulf Coast and South Texas will see more typical summer heat. Also, a front will affect a part of the Southeast with thunderstorms and slightly cooler air next week.
Extreme heat will be setting up for many areas east of the Mississippi this week with widespread triple digits. Meanwhile, many in the Southeast will see the heat ease this week, but it will stay some flavor of hot in the Deep South.
Intense heat will build anew in most areas west of the Mississippi the next few days while fronts pushing into the Southeast will ease the heat in some areas. Close to the East Coast, there will be some more noticeable cooling around the middle of next week.
With fronts pushing into the Southeast, the heat can't get too out of hand there. Meanwhile, some intense heat continues back in Texas and Oklahoma and it's only going to get worse there next week. The extreme heat will nose into the Southeast early next week but get beaten back near the East Coast.
