Wednesday Morning Weather: Summer heat wave continues

Weather

Triple-digit heat continues today across the Big Country, but temperatures should be a degree or two cooler than yesterday. Highs this afternoon will once again warm to around 100° with a heat index from 104° to 107°.

The hot and sunny weather continues through the weekend, however we will finally see a break from the triple-digit temperatures by the start of next week as a weak front approaches the Big Country, bringing lighter winds, a few more clouds and even rain chances.

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
