Good morning, Red River Valley! 

Well, that escalated quickly, didn't it? There's not a great deal of change in the forecast from yesterday, and there won't be for the next week as the area remains under a stalled high pressure system.

Today's high is forecast at about 96 degrees with a heat index value between 105 and 107 degrees. We should have mostly sunny skies and a south wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20. Tonight will be mostly clear with a low around 77. 

A Heat Advisory remains in effect for Delta, Fannin and Lamar counties, in effect through 7 p.m. today. Red River County's heat advisory is in effect until 8 p.m., and Choctaw County's heat advisory is in effect from 1 to 9 p.m. today. 

Stay cool and hydrated, and check on neighbors. Have a great Sunday!
