Yes, it is August. And yes, we expect triple digits this time of the year.
However, that doesn't mean the heat is not dangerous. A Heat Advisory has been issued for all of North Texas through Thursday evening.
This means afternoon heat index values will be between 105° and 110° in most places.
If you're outdoors and doing physical activity, you can quickly become dehydrated or suffer from heat-related illness.
If you have to be outdoors, make sure to have a way to stay cool, take breaks, and stay hydrated.
Please also remember the elderly, pets, and those without A/C. Also remember to check the backseat!
Unfortunately, this is only the beginning of our long overdue heatwave as we'll likely start a streak of triple digits the rest of the week lasting into the weekend and next week.
TODAY: Mostly sunny and hot. Winds: S 5-15. High: 100.
TONIGHT: Mainly clear and muggy. Winds: S 5-10. Low: 79.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny and hot. Heat index: 105°+. Winds: S 5-15. High: 100.
