Get ready to sweat! A heatwave takes hold

Above normal and near-record high temperatures are in the forecast going into the weekend.


Summer takes hold

High pressure continues to hang out close to North Texas. That keeps the weather dry and temps high.

Highs will continue to be in the upper 90s Friday with triple digits expected going into the upcoming weekend.

Rain (mainly) stays away

It's not impossible for North Texas to see some showers and storms the rest of this week, but most places will be dry.

A few showers or storms are possible mainly along the Red River Thursday and Friday. But for the rest of North Texas, the rain outlook looks pretty bleak. Not only the rest of the week, but over the next 10 days as well.
