90s Friday, then 101-103F Saturday-Sunday.

Typical early August weather in-progress this week as a 594dm ridge
remains nearby. Models indicate a brief cold front might enter the
state late Thursday into Friday, as such pops are added with a slight
decrease in temperatures. Front should wash-out, with a return to the
heat by Saturday. Max climate temp remains 94F at OKC for another ten

TS Collin isn't doing well and may be downgraded to a TD or even an
open wave later today. If this system remains deep, it should recurve
in a few days. However, a shallow open wave may continue moving
westward. Should be interesting to watch the peak of tropical season
with all the shear that has been around recently.
