Not much going on in the weather world over the next 7 days as high pressure builds over the area. Daytime highs will creep up into the middle nineties starting tomorrow through the weekend, with heat index values slightly above 100゚.

Happy Wednesday! While most of North & Central TX will remain rain-free, isolated showers and thunderstorms across East TX this afternoon may produce gusty winds and brief heavy rain. Otherwise skies will be partly cloudy with highs in the low 90s. #txwx #dfwwx #ctxwx pic.twitter.com/bmpencVvS9

I will also be watching tropical storm Cristobal through the weekend. As of now, no major impacts will be felt in north Texas - however, this will change if it's track gets shifted farther to the west. 

Tue evening June 2: TS #Cristobal and a #CAG will continue to produce heavy rain over portions of southern Mexico & northern Central America through Saturday, with the highest additional rain amounts inside the red area. Life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides are possible. pic.twitter.com/JLnuS2dxPz
