    North Texans Take Extra Precautions in Extreme Heat

    The extreme heat across North Texas has many people staying indoors and paramedics taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe. (Published Monday, Aug. 26, 2019)

    Alright, ladies and gentlemen. We're about to cross over the first big hurdle. The first substantial cold front to knock down the brutal summer heat and humidity! Now that's not to say we can't warm back up after Monday, but it's going to be really tough to get back into triple-digit heat.

    The temperature will climb into the upper 90s to around 102 degrees Monday afternoon. The heat index, however, will be be between 105 and 110 degrees, making for a dangerously hot and humid afternoon.

    We've been through several similar days recently. We just need to get through one more before we finally see the temperature and humidity levels drop.

    Two cold fronts will move across North Texas this week. The first front will arrive Tuesday. Scattered showers and storms will help to push the front into Central Texas before it stalls out. That means we will have two days -- Tuesday and Wednesday -- with decent chances for showers and storms.

    Behind the first front, temperatures will drop into the upper 80s to lower 90s for a couple days. Just as temperatures start to climb late in the week, another cold front will come in to knock us back down to around 90 degrees in time for Labor Day weekend.

    We're almost to the summer finish line. Just a little bit longer to go!

    Before the Storm
    Weather Safety

    Stay Safe During a Hail Storm
     
    At Home?
    • Head indoors immediately
    • If time allows, close all drapes, blinds or shades to prevent broken glass from entering your home.
    • Stay away from windows and skylights (any exterior glass) and head to a safe location inside your home, ideally only with interior walls.
    Outdoors?
    • Cover your head and seek shelter indoors immediately.
    • If you are trapped outside, get to a low-lying area and try to protect your head. Use clothing if it's all you have.
    Driving?
    • Stay inside your vehicle.
    • Slow down or pull over and stop at a safe location. DO NOT stop under a highway overpass. You may be protecting your vehicle, but you could be forcing other people to stop behind you.
    • Turn your back to windows or cover yourself with a blanket, coat or spare clothing to protect yourself from breaking glass.
    • If you have a sunroof, try to find something to protect your head.
