    High heat and sunshine will continue early this week for the Dallas area.

    Some slight relief will arrive Wednesday through Thursday, as temperatures hover in the mid-90s, along with the chance of a thunderstorm in sports in the afternoon and evening hours.

    Much of the West is dealing with significant drought and Texas is no exception.

    Nearly 3 percent of the state is in exceptional drought, the highest classification according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

    The lack of rain will not aid the over 35 percent of Texas classified as being in a severe drought. If you are enjoying outdoor activities, make sure to wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water.
