National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

A Heat Advisory is in effect along and west of the I-35 corridor today where temperatures will climb into the 103-105 degree range. An Excessive heat Watch is in effect Thursday and Friday when it will be even warmer with high temperatures in the 105-110 degree range. Take precautions to protect yourself and others from heat-related illness.
Very hot temperatures are expected through the weekend. Some areas will be near or surpass record temperatures! Maximum heat index values will be in the 104-112 range. If you're outdoors, be sure to stay hydrated, take frequent breaks, and seek shaded areas!
The heat wave in progress is some of the hottest weather North and Central Texas has experienced in a few years. Heat waves with 100 degree temperatures lasting 10 or more days are fairly uncommon, only occurring once every few years at DFW and Waco. The last time NWS Fort Worth issued an Excessive Heat Watch/Warning was in 2011.
With the upcoming stretch of oppressive heat, here are some heat safety tips!
Here's the difference between the Heat Advisory vs. Excessive Heat Warning. Regardless of the products in effect, you need to be sure that you are prepared. Drink plenty of water, dress of heat and reduce your time in the sun. Help the elderly, kids and pets stay cool! Never leave children, disabled adults or pets in parked vehicles. Beat the heat, check the backseat!
