Not quite as hot today as yesterday but still pretty toasty with highs in the upper 80s and 90s. Winds will be breezy and out of the northwest today as a frontal boundary moves through the area. That plus low relative humidity today will create critical fire weather concerns for the areas outlined in yellow. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for these areas this afternoon.
A Red Flag Warning is in effect for this afternoon as sustained winds of 15-25 mph combined with low relative humidity will create conditions favorable for rapid spread of fires. Any outdoor burning is highly discouraged today.
Hot and dry conditions are expected through the end of the week. Rain chances will return to the area Saturday afternoon and evening along and east of the I-35 corridor as a cold front moves through. Cooler temperatures will be in store as a result Sunday and Monday.
Temperatures are climbing! Make sure you practice heat safety wherever you are! Whether your working, exercising, or just running errands, make sure you know how to stay safe during hot temperature days.
