Our June temperatures have been on "easy mode" due to the wet pattern. Now that the rain chances are over for a few days, expect more normal June temperatures with humidity booster. This will put heat indices in the upper 90s to lower 100s each afternoon.

Next week is looking quite a bit drier across North and Central Texas, especially towards the end of the week. Less rain will result in warmer temperatures across the area with high temperatures approaching 90 degrees by the end of the week.

A slow-moving upper low will bring chances for showers and storms to the region this weekend. The best chances will be near and east of I-35, where locally heavy rainfall and isolated flooding will be possible. Stay weather-aware this weekend, especially if you have any outdoor plans!

06/04/2021

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the overnight hours. Locally heavy rainfall and lightning will continue to be the main hazards. Low temperatures in the 60s are expected across the area under mostly cloudy skies.

Food for Thought from a Plano Resident . ( I heard from high authorities on TV that the control of this virus was up to us, the community). So here it is, I am the community and here is my plan. I hope my local authorities are listening too. How to help the ill and the economy at the same time . By Yolanda Orta-Swope. It might be important for a serious ( massive and immediate ) effort to identify those who already have immunity against this virus . That would mean a serious, organized, well funded , prioritized, emergency plan to measure the antibodies (defenses) in the blood of those who already had the disease and among the general population ( because many have had the illness without symptoms and probably have good defenses). This plan serves 2 important and crucial purposes : 1-) Those with immunity can go back to work right now. As more recover from the virus, more will go back and join the work force now ( immediately) with no risk to anybody . ( instead of keeping all of us locked up for months ). This is the quickest and safest way I can think of to recuperate the economy quickly. 2-) Those who have recovered from the virus , and have antibodies against it, can (and should) donate blood/plasma to be given to those who are sick and at risk of dying. Those on ventilators . This might be one of the only hopes for a quick treatment at this time. ( every recovered person who is otherwise healthy , should donate blood). This should be a priority plan ( just my opinion). Of course, assuming we build immunity after getting the infection ( which is probably the case). And By the way, we should know this by now. What do you think?
I manage a Home Health Agency in Plano. How do i get PPE for my nurses and HHA's?
Plano EM, Can you please give an update on where Plano residents can go to get tested for Covid19? Are there mobile units available and where are they located?
