NORTH TEXAS (CBSNewsTexas.com) – Get ready for more heat in the triple digits!
A heat advisory is in effect for parts of North Texas, including the DFW Metroplex, until 9:00 PM on Wednesdays. The maximum temperatures will be between 103 and 107 degrees.
Remember to take breaks while outdoors, drink plenty of water, and watch before locking your car so you don’t leave your children and/or pets in this dangerous heat.
We will see plenty of sunshine in Tuesday’s forecast but no rain, which means our elevated fire threat will continue, especially for areas along and west of I-35.
The combination of low relative humidity, gusty winds and high temperatures could help the fires spread rapidly. Please avoid burning outdoors.
Tuesday is also an Ozone Day of Action for sensitive groups. Those with asthma or other respiratory issues should limit their time outdoors, and we should all try to carpool if possible.
Even hotter is on the way on Wednesday. Highs will be around 102 in the afternoon, with temperatures nearing 104.
As we head into Thursday and into the weekend, we will have drier weather which will keep our fire threat elevated into early next week. Maximum temperatures will be in the triple digits Thursday through next Monday.
