As you know it’s going to be a very hot Friday and Saturday in North Texas but there are chances for some isolated storms Friday night and Saturday. “Isolated storms may approach the Red River late this afternoon and evening as a cold front slowly slides south through Oklahoma. This front will make it to around I-20 on Saturday with additional widely scattered thunderstorms.”

The center says if any storms develop they will be accompanied by strong winds, “Otherwise, it will be hot on both days with high temperatures between 101-106 degrees and heat index values as high as 111 degrees.”
