Temperatures climbed into the triple-digits for the third day in a row Thursday, and we continue the stretch of 100° today. Highs will once again return to the triple-digits for many this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will stay very warm into this evening, only cooling off to around 80° by Saturday morning.
A cold front will push across the Big Country through the day on Saturday. This front will bring a chance for very isolated showers and thunderstorms as it moves through, especially Saturday evening into early Sunday morning. Cooler air will filter in behind it for Sunday too, keeping temperatures in the low to mid 90s.
However, the heat does return again by the middle of next week with more 100s on the way.
