FORECAST SUMMARY:

As of 7:32 AM, it was warm and quiet. Most areas were in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s. There was a light northeast wind.

The EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING will remain in effect for most of our area through 8:00 p.m. this evening. High temperatures will range from 104° to around 107°. Prolonged exposure to the outdoors during the late morning through the early evening time-frame will make heat related illness possible. There will be a slight breeze out of the northeast under a mostly sunny sky. The Southern Big Country and Heartland does feature a 10% chance of showers and non-severe storms during the afternoon.

Wednesday and Thursday have slightly better chances of rain showers and non-severe storms. Right now I am including a 20% chance of activity during the afternoon and early evening for the Big Country and Heartland. The chances are not good and most areas should remain dry. Hundred degree heat will hang on with a breeze.

Friday through the weekend looks completely dry as the oppressive heat continues.
