Severe Thunderstorms With Heavy Rain Possible In The Upper Midwest; Excessive Heat For Central U.S.

Several rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible from the northern Plains and upper Midwest to the Great Lakes through Friday. Damaging winds, large hail, and flooding will be the primary threats with these storms. Excessive heat will grip the central Plains with heat indices approaching 105 to 110 degrees. Very hot and humid conditions are likely to expand into the Mid Atlantic. Read More >

With high temperatures in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees, and high humidity values, heat index values will approach and exceed 105 degrees across parts of North and Central Texas through Saturday. As a result, a heat advisory remains in effect for locales along and east of the I-35 corridor. Remember to drink plenty of water, avoid strenuous outdoor activity, and ensure children and/or pets are NEVER left alone in a hot vehicle.
Hot and humid weather will persist into the upcoming weekend. High temperatures will be in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees, but the humidity will make it feel like it's around 101-108 degrees. The highest heat index values are expected along and east of the I-35 corridor. There is also a low chance for some afternoon thunderstorms across our southeastern counties on Saturday, and then across all of our region on Sunday. Severe weather is not expected, but gusty winds and cloud to ground lightning will be a threat.
Here are some tips to keep you and your family (pets included) safe from the summer heat!
