DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Cities and non-profits across North Texas are getting ready for triple-digit heat this weekend. 

The Salvation Army has set up cooling stations at 13 centers across North Texas.

The city of Dallas has activated its "level 2 extended heat plan" by opening recreation centers for people to cool off and get some water.

UT Southwestern Doctor Paul Pepe says triple-digit heat can cause more problems early in the year.

The National Weather Service says north Texas doesn't usually hit 100 degrees until July 1st. 

This was the second warmest May on record for DFW and the National Weather Service says a dry could lead to a hotter summer.
