Another hot day is in store for North and Central Texas with temperatures in the upper 90s to around 101. Today will also become increasingly hazy as dust that originated in the Sahara Desert of Africa returns to the region. A few showers and thunderstorms are possible near the Red River this afternoon. Gusty winds may accompany any storms that do develop.
It will be a scorcher this week with temperatures rising a little each day as an upper level high pressure builds over the region. Triple digit daytime temperatures will be common with warm overnight lows near 80.
Here are some heat safety tips for you, your family, and your pets! Be sure to protect your family as triple digit heat returns to the forecast! For more info: weather.gov/heat
