Still Hot, Showers for the Weekend

The heat goes on and on but there is some relief in sight. Hot and breezy today. High 99. Heat Index peaks at 109. These can be dangerous conditions, you are advised to minimize strenuous activity during peak heating hours. Tonight fair and mild. Low 74. There is a weak front in North Texas that will slowly drop into the region. With that a weakening high pressure we have a shot at some scattered showers around the area this weekend. The peak of the shower activity will be on Saturday. Temperatures should drop into the low 90's with the increased clouds and showers.Let's hope!
