Expect scorching heat to stick around

More heat is coming, but lower temperatures are possible next week.
The National Weather Service has extended a heat advisory that warns of more 100-degree days until 8 p.m. Friday, said Jessica Schultz, a meteorologist with the Fort Worth forecasting station.
“Through the weekend, we’re still looking at temperatures near or above 100,” she said. “(Today), Friday and Saturday will be between 100-102 degrees for the Ennis area. Starting Sunday and into next week, it looks like we’ll see a little bit of a cool-down back in the mid-to-upper 90s.”
The change will amount to only about five-eight degrees on the high end of the thermometer, but weather like this is not uncommon for Ennis.
“Typically, the first time that DFW hits 100 is around July 1,” Schultz said. “But generally we’re right in that time frame. Overall, we’re right in the ballpark.”
Heat indexes in the lower-to-mid 100s are expected to continue through at least Saturday, as well, so with humidity factored in, it could feel as hot as 105 degrees outside, Schultz said.
