At least three days above 90 degrees F are expected in the Dallas area through mid-week.

A storm is forecast to move into the Northwest this weekend.

It will become gradually more humid each day setting the stage for the development of severe weather to move into the area on Thursday.

Once the storm moves across the Rockies, it will serve as a heat pump bringing hot and humid air will build northward over the Plains through the next several days.
