NORTH TEXAS — Aside from rounds of rain and storms in the South sides of North Texas, it has been a quiet but hot and humid day. In fact, our high temperature was just four degrees shy of tying the record high of 96° on this date.


Storms developed along the dryline late Thursday afternoon but as they have moved east, they have encountered a more stable airmass and have weakened. 

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for parts of North Texas including Collin County. There could be some isolated storms with large hail and damaging winds as the main threat in the overnight hours.


Friday looks to be a hot and humid day with near-record heat possible. It won't be a completely dry day with a 20% chance of some isolated storms. Late in the day, we could see the storm development and with the rich moisture in place, the storms could reach severe limits. 

The storm prediction center has parts of North Texas under a slight risk of severe storms but it is conditional based on the CAP in place.  


For the holiday weekend, stay weather-aware on Saturday. While most of the day is dry, there is the chance of some storms off the dryline moving close to North Texas late in the day into the evening hours. A 20% and again this is conditional; however, as of Thursday, the Red River counties are under an Enhanced risk of any of the storms reaching severe limits. Large hail and damaging winds are the biggest threats both days.  


Heat and humidity are on the way! Yes, we are near record heat Friday and Sunday but that isn't factoring in the humidity.  


Look at how it could feel on Friday and Saturday despite the high temps being in the mid to low 90s.


Make sure you take breaks in the shade and hydrate! Memorial Day will feel better and will be cooler thanks to a dry front that moves through. However, lather on the sunscreen because we have lots of sun in the forecast.
