    Dallas will see a stretch of dry, sunny weather for the next several days.

    Temperatures will range from the upper 90s and even near the 100 F mark, slightly above usual averages for this time of year. Overnight temperatures consistently settle into the upper 70s into the weekend.

    Skies will be mostly sunny with the chance of rain in the forecast over the weekend. Sunday could bring an afternoon thunderstorm with showers. Still, the pop up storm will not be enough to start relieving drought concerns.

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

    The lack of rain will not aid the over 35 percent of the state classified as being in a severe drought. Nearly 3 percent of the state is in exceptional drought, the highest classification according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

    For fans headed to Globe Life Park to catch some of the Rangers' three game home series against the Los Angeles Angels, conditions will be mostly clear but hot. Sunday's 2:05 p.m. state could be impacted by a quick thunderstorm. Upon the first sign of a thunderstorm, seek indoor shelter.

    When spending extended amount of time in the sun, take proper precautions and apply sunscreen regularly. Additionally, it is essential to stay hydrated by drinking enough water when temperatures are so high.
