Summer greeted the many residents of the DFW area with the first 100 degree days of the season and a level orange pollution watch, meaning that ozone is expected to reach the unhealthy range this week.
The forecast is for a streak of 100 degree days.
“Just plain old-fashioned hot this week,” said NBC 5 meteorologist David Finfrock during an evening broadcast.
The forecast for the rest of the week calls for mostly sunny skies, with afternoon highs in the triple digits and morning lows in the low to middle 70s, and no chance of rain.
Area pools, water parks, and snow cone stands have been packed all week with youngsters looking for a bit of relief.
These kids were caught cooling off at Raymond Street Splash Park in White Settlement. Pictured (l-r) are Angel Grider, Paige Miller, Miguel Moran, Josh Miller, Alexis Grider, Bethany Miller, Bruce Ramos, and Gabby Ramos.
