Another hot day is in store for Saturday and Sunday, with some much anticipated relief coming in the way of a cold front on Sunday evening. Highs will drop from the upper 90s to the upper 80s and lower 90s for much of the area. Lows will get into the upper 50s and lower 60s, marking the start of much more seasonable temperatures to end off September.
A cold front will move into the area on Sunday afternoon and evening, and may be accompanied by isolated showers and thunderstorms. Most areas will remain dry and severe weather is not expected. High temperatures will still climb into the mid and upper 90s prior to the front's arrival.
All this talk about a cold front, but what exactly can we expect it to feel like next week? The drier air that will spread across the region behind the front is going to give North and Central Texas a taste of early fall. Afternoon temperatures will be near normal for late September while dew points fall into the "pleasant" and "dry" range. A lower dewpoint means sweat evaporates more efficiently and can make sunny and warm days feel bearable.
It may be fall but it is still hot out there. Protect yourself from heat related illnesses and practice heat safety wherever you are. Here are some ways you can stay safe in the heat.
