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.
High temperatures in the upper 90s to lower 100s are expected this weekend for much of the region. When combined with the humidity, heat index values may exceed 105 degrees during the afternoon in many locations. Remember to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks if planning outdoor activities.
