The heat continues into the end of this week as more triple-digits are likely before the weekend is over. Highs will continue to hover around 100° all the way into Sunday as skies remain sunny. Winds will continue to stay breezy too into Saturday, before dying down into Sunday.
A July cold front will swing into the Big Country Monday into Tuesday, which will finally bring an end to the heat wave we’ve been having. This front will drop temperatures back into the mid and low 90s and even bring a chance for rain.
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
