The heat wave continues this week as afternoon highs once again climb to around 100° today. Triple-digit temperatures will hang around through the weekend as skies remain sunny to mostly sunny and winds breezy.
Ways to stay safe in the heat:
- Avoid the hottest time of the day, between noon and 6:00 pm
- Drink plenty of water
- Wear sunscreen, and reapply as needed
- Take frequent breaks from the heat
- Check on or bring in outdoor pets
- Always check the back seat before locking the car
There is change on the horizon though and relief in sight from the heat as a cold front will be moving through the Big Country Monday morning. This front will send temperatures below average into the end of next week, and bring rain chances Monday and Tuesday morning.
