GREENVILLE — The temperature at Majors Field Municipal Airport in Greenville reached 100 degrees again Monday afternoon. It was the 17th day, at least, this summer that the local high has reached the triple digits.
But there are some big changes on the way for the upcoming weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
There have been 10 days so far this month that the thermometer at the airport has reached 100 degrees or higher, with three triple digit days in June and at least four days in July. The afternoon airport readings were unavailable on two of the days in July that the temperature was believed to have exceeded 100 degrees.
But the National Weather Service issued the following statement this afternoon about what is headed this way by the end of the week:
The upper level weather pattern is going to change by Friday and help to send a cold front south into the region. High temperatures are expected to cool behind it and only be in the low 90s Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. In addition, the storm track is expected to shift south across Texas and should provide for rain chances each day from Friday through Sunday.
