The heat bearing down on North Texas won’t lift anytime soon.

A heat advisory is in effect for North Texas as temperatures stay in the upper 90s. The dew point remains high, which could drive heat index values as high as 107 degrees in the coming days.

“It’s going to be hot,”said Dennis Cain, National Weather Service meteorologist. “No rain is in the forecast for the seven days.”

The winds that could provide some relief will die down, with gusts dropping from 25 mph on Thursday to 20 mph on Friday, Cain said.
