Saturday will be hot as a weak frontal boundary slides into the region and winds become light. A few thunderstorms may develop along the frontal boundary Saturday afternoon and evening. Coverage should be 20-30% with best chances along and north of I-20. Highs will top out in the 97-100 degree range.
Evening showers and storms will diminish, but additional showers/storms may develop very late tonight and into Saturday morning, mainly from I-35 eastward and north of I-20. Severe weather is not expected, but these storms may produce gusty winds and brief heavy rainfall in addition to cloud to ground lightning.
Make sure you can recognize heat-related illness symptoms! Asegurese de reconocer los sintomas de enfermedades relacionadas con el calor!
As the heat and humidity returns once again, be sure to practice heat safety wherever you are!
