A weak cold front is expected to arrive late Sunday in North Texas. This will bring more cloud cover, along with a slight chance for showers. Highs will drop back into the 90s Monday and are expected to remain below average through most of next week.
While we’re dealing with the brutal heat this weekend, please try to limit your time outside, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room and check up on relatives and neighbors.MORE NEWS: VIDEO: A Candid Conversation With Kristaps Porzingis
