This is going to be another warm and muggy day with lots of cloud cover. Temperatures will peak in the mid-80s. The risk of severe weather increases as the afternoon goes on.

Plenty of sunshine and some dry air over North Texas on Thursday allowed the temperature to warm to 92°. That is just 4° shy of tying the record of 96° set back in 1962.


The flood threat continues with any of these storms. Flash flooding is a concern across the day and evening.

There is a smaller risk of severe weather Friday and Saturday as well. The storms will be more scattered, but the threat of large hail and damaging winds will come with any of these storms.

The holiday weekend has some storm risk on Saturday but hot weather Sunday. The air will be drier on Sunday and Monday as a front comes through, that means the feel-like temperatures will be kept in check.

Here is your 7-day forecast. The storms are back by mid-week.
