The weather word for North Texas for the next several days is SIZZLIN'.
A heat advisory is in effect until 8 p.m. Tuesday. High temperatures in North Terxas are expected to hover between 103 and 107, with heat indexes between 105 and 108 degrees.
The heat advisory means hot conditions will increase the dangers of heat-related illnesses and possible fatalities.
Officials with the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth advise residents to check on neighbors, friends and family members who are susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Pets and children should not be left in an enclosed vehicle.
Weather service officials recommend that people working outside take frequent breaks in shaded air-conditioned facilities.
"For at least 10 days, we're going to have a stagnant weather pattern," said meteorologist Steve Fano at the National Weather Service in Fort Worth on Sunday. "There are very little signs of change in those days."
And if that's not enough to make you sweat, meteorologists say we haven't even seen the hottest weather yet. Now through mid-August is historically the hottest time of the year.
High temperatures through Thursday at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, the official weather service reporting station for North Texas, are expected to be 105. High temperatures Friday through Sunday are expected to be in the low 100s. Morning lows will be around 80, the weather service reports.
