Friday will be a hot day with high temperatures ranging from the mid 90s to around 100-101 degrees. Heat index values will be a few degrees higher at 100-107 degrees, but a 10-20 mph wind will provide a little relief. This afternoon, a few storms in our northeastern counties are possible, and an isolated strong to severe storm is possible. Hail and damaging winds are the main hazards with isolated storms this afternoon.
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. At this time it appears that the greatest severe risk will be either along the Red River or the northwestern counties. Stay tuned to your local forecast to get the latest weather updates as we head into the weekend.
The heat will continue on Saturday with highs in the mid-upper 90s east, 99-105 degrees west. The humidity will result in heat index values (what it feels like) anywhere from 100 to 108 degrees. Remember , prolonged activity in this excessive heat can lead to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Avoid outdoor activity during the heat of the day. If you must participate in outdoor activity, drink plenty of water and take plenty of breaks in shaded and/or air conditioned areas.
