Hot and humid conditions continue on Saturday, with most areas seeing heat index values higher than 100 degrees. A Heat Advisory will be in effect on Saturday from 2 PM to 7 PM for parts of North and Central Texas. Be sure to take extra precautions if outdoors!
Two areas of thunderstorms are possible on Saturday. The first will be in the afternoon and evening along a dryline if the cap weakens sufficiently for storms to develop. If storms are able to form, they would likely be severe with the potential for large hail and damaging winds. The second area to watch will be a cluster of storms developing in Oklahoma that could move southward into North Texas later Saturday night. These storms could also be severe with damaging winds possible.
Scattered thunderstorms will be possible on Sunday along a slow- moving cold front. A few strong or severe storms will be possible, especially across Central Texas during the afternoon hours. The day is not expected to be a washout as coverage of storms is only expected to be around 30-50%.
With the first extended hot spell expected Friday and Saturday of the last weekend in May, a few rules of thumb to think about when heading out with children in vehicles. Never leave a child, pet, or even an adult in a hot vehicle for any extended period of time, as it can be fatal!
