The oppressive heat won't be taking any time off this weekend. Highs will peak around 100-105 across West Texas.
This has prompted the National Weather Service to extend the heat advisory through Sunday night.
The heat advisory is set to end at 8 p.m. Sunday night, so this leaves a lot of room for dangerous heat to put a damper on any weekend plans. If you must venture outdoors, here are some tips to help keep you and your loved ones safe.
Although dangerous heat is the main factor of this weekend's forecast, it's not the only factor. Saturday afternoon and overnight pose a chance for marginal severe weather concerns. The main hazards are damaging wind gusts, frequent lightning, and heavy rain.
This chance for severe weather is thanks to a cold front that is forecast to stall in the Concho Valley. Unfortunately, it won't offer any relief from the heat, but it will bring some much needed rain to the region.
