Wednesday could be the hottest day of the year so far! The thermometer at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport could reach 95 degrees, but the humidity will make it feel like it’s between 105 and 108 degrees.
Be sure to take precautions to protect yourself in the heat, and don’t forget about your pets.
The first Heat Advisory of the year has been issued for our southern counties Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. A heat advisory means that afternoon heat index values are expected to meet or exceed 105 degrees for at least two consecutive days.
Although most of the day will be dry, the heat will be fuel for additional late day storms. Those who do see storms could see strong to severe storms. The severe weather threat will peak Wednesday evening and into the nighttime hours with the possibility of large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes. Be sure to stay aware this evening.
Thursday will be dry but even hotter with afternoon highs in the upper 90s. Summer officially arrives Friday, and it will feel like it with afternoon highs in the mid 90s.
