Almanac

Heat Advisory Continues

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 98°
  • 77°

The weekend still looks rather hot. Daytime highs should make a run at 100 Friday through Sunday. By Sunday, a cold front will start dropping south toward Texoma. This could give us some rain chances. That front will help change our weather pattern for next week. It doesn't look at hot and we could turn wetter again. That's something we'll be tracking into the weekend.

Tonight: Clear and humid. Lows in the lower to middle 70s.

Friday through Sunday: Sunny and hot. There is a 20-percent chance for storms by Sunday. Highs near 100. Lows in the 70s.

Monday of next week: A 20 to 30-percent chance for storms. Highs in the 90s lows in the 60s.
