The National Weather Service has extended a heat advisory for most of North Texas through 8 p.m. Monday.

We got a break from the triple-digit temperatures on Friday, but Saturday's high reached 103 in Dallas — and this might just be the coolest day we see for a while.

WFAA meteorologist Steve McCauley forecast Sunday's highs to range between 103 and 106 degrees across the region, but with reduced humidity.

He added that there is no rain in the North Texas forecast for the foreseeable future. "Not even those isolated thunderstorms we've been accustomed to in the last couple of weeks," McCauley said. "Our rain chances are now zero ... until this high pressure cell leaves North Texas, and that doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon."

McCauley's forecast calls for high temperatures of 106 or 107 every day Monday through Friday.

The heat advisory area includes Dallas and Fort Worth and areas to the north.

If you have a neighbor or family member who is elderly or who has health problems, be sure to check on them during the heat wave.

Never leave children or pets in an enclosed vehicle — even for a short time — because of the potential danger.

If you must work or play outside, be sure to take frequent rest breaks in shady or air conditioned areas and drink plenty of water.
