We'll continue to experience excessive heat across portions of the region through the weekend. An excessive heat warning has been issued for portions of North Texas through Saturday evening. This includes Dallas, Tarrant, Denton and counties to the south and east.

High temperatures will climb into the 100 to 104-degree range through Sunday. Heat index values will approach 110 again Saturday afternoon. Be sure to limit time outdoors and take the necessary precautions to stay cool and hydrated.

With the hot and breezy weather expected, there's an elevated risk for grass-fires, especially to the west of DFW. Please avoid outdoor burning or any other activities that might create a spark.
