Heat Wave Promises Sweltering Summer Days Ahead, So Plan Accordingly

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) - With pop up storms few and far between Monday afternoon and a high of 94° degrees, expect even hotter temperatures by mid-week.

Dew points however are in the low 70s, making for rather "soupy" conditions before Tuesday's lesser chance of afternoon storms.

Highs will reach into the upper 90s with a feel-like around 105° as the metroplex reaches the threshold for a Heat Advisory on Tuesday.

CBS 11 Meteorologist Jeff Ray forecasts triple-digit highs from Wednesday through early next week, the longest stretch of 100 degree days since last July of 2018 (ten in a row last year).

Dry conditions look to prevail.

Ray said this upcoming weekend looks to be the hottest since last summer and urges people to plan accordingly.
