Residents can expect a warm, sunny weather pattern throughout the week, said Dan Shoemaker, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

“There’s no chance of rain going into the week,” Shoemaker said. “It’s the typical summer set up, but not quite hitting 100 degrees yet.”

Temperatures are expected to remain steady for the week, with highs in the mid-90s and evening lows in the 70s, he said.

A south wind of 5 to 15 mph is expected for the week.

Dew points will be in the 60s, which will make for humid temperatures, Shoemaker said.

“There’s no serious weather expected, just heat,” he said.

As Hurricane Arthur weakened to a post-tropical storm on the East Coast and New England states, Shoemaker said it doesn’t appear anything is brewing in the Gulf of Mexico.

“We can’t predict when the Gulf will get a hurricane, but if one occurred, it wouldn’t affect the inland areas as much — other than bringing rain,” he said.
