We'll be monitoring the potential for a thunderstorm complex to move into North Texas from Oklahoma tonight. There are low storm chances along and north of I-20, with greater chances along the Red River. Strong winds and some hail would be possible if the complex reaches North Texas. Otherwise, it will be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s to low 80s.
Thunderstorms are expected to develop in the vicinity of a weak frontal boundary Saturday evening, progressing east to southeast to near the I-20 corridor Saturday night before dissipating during the overnight hours. A few of these storms may become severe, containing large hail and damaging winds. Stay tuned to your local forecast to get the latest weather updates as we head into the weekend!
High temperatures in the upper 90s to lower 100s are expected this weekend for much of the region. When combined with the humidity, heat index values may exceed 105 degrees during the afternoon in many locations. Remember to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks if planning outdoor activities.
The heat will continue next week with most of North and Central Texas experiencing high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s. Be sure to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks if outdoors!
Hot days coming up... Be sure to know the terminology and don't forget these heat safety rules. For additional information check out this heat safety website: www.weather.gov/heat
