The upper ridge continues to flatten over the Plains, giving us a
slight break from the intense heat we saw last week. Temperatures
the next couple of days will be similar to what we saw Sunday, which
is very close to normal. The upper ridge then shifts back south
across Texas by midweek bringing with it hotter temperatures. An
isolated storm is not out of the question much of this week, but
increasing mid level heights will act to suppress any convection
that tries to form. Models then show the ridge breaking down this
coming weekend with cooler temps and even some scattered storms
around the area.
