Things are starting to look up a bit. Tomorrow and Saturday are expected to be quite warm. The trend for the afternoon high temperatures will be positive (negative). Instead of highs near 100, we will be looking at highs in the low to mid 90s by the middle of next week.
A cold front will move into North Texas on Friday, reaching Central Texas by Friday Night. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are forecast to form near this cold front. While severe weather is not anticipated, a few stronger thunderstorms may produce gusty winds in excess of 40 MPH, heavy downpours, and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. Behind the cold front, temperatures will be less hot, with highs across North Texas expected to remain in the low to mid 90s. Temperatures may still approach the century mark across Central Texas however. Temperatures will drop further into Sunday and the early part of next week.
It is July in Texas and it's hot. So you're probably thinking why is the National Weather Service telling us about the heat? Well, it's simple: heat kills. Know the signs of heat exhaustion versus heat stroke. Faint or dizzy with excessive sweating, that's heat exhaustion. Get to a cooler place and drink water. What if you or someone you know, is in the heat and suddenly stops sweating, gets a throbbing headache and/or nausea? Well, these are signs of a Heat Stroke and this is an emergency situation. Your body is no longer able to cool off and if you don't get immediate care - it can be fatal. If you're suffering from Heat Stroke, you should call 9-1-1 and then immediately take action to cool down as you wait for help to arrive.
