A mild and muggy night is in store for North and Central Texas with partly cloudy skies. Overnight temperatures will reach the low to mid 70s. Breezy south winds 15 to 20 mph is expected tonight, with gusts as high as 30 mph.
The chances for thunderstorms this Saturday will depend on whether the cap weakens enough to allow storms to develop. The cap is a layer of warm air that is located 1-2 miles above the surface that can suppress storm development. If storms are able to develop Saturday, they will likely be severe and capable of producing large hail and damaging winds.
Warm temperatures and humid conditions will come together starting Friday leading to heat index values exceeding the 100 degree mark in many locations across North and Central Texas. Given the relatively cool days we had early this week, this will be a stark change coming for Friday and continue Saturday. Make sure to drink plenty of water and never leave children or pets alone in vehicles!
The heat will continue Saturday with heat index values exceeding 100 degrees for most locations. This will be the second day in a row with high index values and precautions should be taken if heading outdoors. Make sure to drink plenty of water and do not leave children or pets unattended in vehicles.
