...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS EVENING...

* TEMPERATURE...Mid 90s to 103 degrees. Heat index values in the
105 to 110 degrees range.

* IMPACTS...Heat exhaustion and heat stroke will be possible for
individuals that work or play outside without adequate shade
or water.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible...reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the
elderly...as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and
heat stroke. Never leave young children or pets in an enclosed
vehicle...even for a short time...as temperatures can quickly
rise to life threatening levels.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency, call 9 1 1.

Rain Chances Ramp Up with Arrival of Front

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 96°
  • 69°

A cold front now to our north will slide through Texoma this afternoon. By late afternoon we may have thunderstorms in the area. Isolated thunderstorms this evening will become widespread late tonight into early Saturday morning. Now before the front arrives, this afternoon will be hot. Places like Graham and Jacksboro could see triple digit heat. For Wichita Falls this will likely be the warmest day of the week. The front will deliver cooler temperatures for the weekend when highs will be in the low 80s. The best chance of rain Saturday will be in the morning. Another fair chance will come late Sunday into Monday morning.
