Some lingering showers and storms be possible this morning along the Red River, but these chances will decrease by the afternoon. Mostly to partly sunny skies are expected with highs in the mid 90s. Heat index values will range from 98 to 102 this afternoon. Stay hydrated if you're outdoors!
Hot and humid conditions are expected through the end of the week. Abundant rainfall in some locations will help maintain 70s dewpoint temperatures into the afternoon hours, which will create dangerous heat index readings. The highest afternoon heat indices are expected along and north of a line from Fort Worth to Canton, where values could exceed 105 degrees.
The heat and humidity will continue this weekend with highs in the mid to upper 90s and heat index values ranging from 99 to 104 degrees. There are some low storm chances generally along and north of the Red River through Sunday, with rain chances increasing and shifting on Sunday night. Stay hydrated and seek shade this weekend if you're outdoors! Stay tuned for updates!
As the heat and humidity returns once again, be sure to practice heat safety wherever you are!
Drought-parched soils soaked up much of the recent rainfall, but runoff added water to many area lakes. The one-week change in lake level (August 8 to 15) is shown in inches. If the change was less than 1/2 inch, "no change" is listed. The percent of conservation is based on the current water volume in the lake.
