Hot Summer Days Continue

Temperatures continue to soar under mainly sunny and hazy skies, reaching the mid to upper 90s on this Tuesday afternoon.  Due to the humidity, however, heat indices are rising as high as the low to mid 100s, especially across the eastern part of the region.  We will see both temperatures and heat indices on a downward trend through the evening with temperatures cooling to the upper 80s to lower 90s and heat indices remaning in the low to mid 90s by about 8pm.

In The Atlantic...



Our second storm of the Atlantic season, TROPICAL DEPRESSION 2 is looming out in the Central Atlantic with sustained winds around 35 mph. The storm is predicted to move towards the Lesser Antilles by early Thursday, and it may become a weak tropical storm by this point.  Should this system strengthen into a tropical storm, it will become Tropical Storm Bertha.

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday evening!

Sweltering Stretch of Summer Days

Temperatures will be the headline most of the next five weeks, the core of our summer season, though a few welcome interruptions also look possible. One of those game-changers, an upper-level disturbance, is slowly moving this general direction and it might impact our part of Texas by Thursday. Otherwise, plan on highs near 100 to feel even hotter.

At this hour:

The hottest in Texas yesterday? 107 at Laredo. It felt like a triple digit day here locally, with these peak heat index readings:
103 Austin-Airport
103 Austin-Mabry
103 Georgetown
103 Killeen
101 Temple
101 San Marcos
  99 Burnet

Today across Texas:

Morning clouds give way to lots of bright afternoon sunshine, which will again work to evaporate away more moisture out of our soil. We're stable thanks to strong high pressure over the Southern Rockies, and likely going to remain rain-free until Thursday at the earliest. Futurecast shows some coastal showers potentially coming in as a slow-moving disturbance in the Deep South moves closer to Houston. As some of that activity might flow our direction during the day Thursday, we raised the rain chance up to at least 20%.

The dominant high pressure ridge is expected to hover over the Rockies through early next week, so winds aloft will continue to flow in from the north. In that flow, one weak cold front is expected to drop through North Texas by Thursday and another might ease into the picture next Monday or Tuesday. At this point, we're not incredibly confident in rain for our final days of July but will keep an eye on the situation. Stay tuned for updates here and on the 7 Day Forecast.

In The Atlantic...

TROPICAL DEPRESSION 2 is looming out in the Central Atlantic with sustained winds around 35 mph. The storm is predicted to move towards the Lesser Antilles by early Thursday, and it might become a weak TROPICAL STORM BERTHA by that point.

Midnight Sun... Take a look at this incredible photo. The scene looks impressive on its own but would you believe it was taken at midnight? True story! It happened in Norway, the "land of the midnight sun". As sun angles are already dropping again, it was the last night for the sun to be above the horizon after midnight for the season.

Enjoy your Tuesday.
