AUSTIN, Texas — We're coming in hot! The final days of July are likely to look very different than the first couple weeks of the month. We are approaching statistically the hottest month of the year and it seems like the 100s desperately want to pay us a visit.
An area of high pressure is gaining ground as it moves westward across the Lone Star state. Expect upper 90s bordering 100 Sunday through Tuesday with rain chances all but non-existent. Feels-like temperatures on top of that will range between 102 and 108 in the hottest parts of Central Texas. Make sure you're staying hydrated, listening to your body and taking breaks from the sun if you're outside for an extended period of time.
Towards Tuesday and Wednesday a trough is set to unveil on the southern rim of high pressure which some models are indicating moderate to heavy rain with some embedded thunderstorms. We will have to close monitor how strong and where the trough sets up to determine our rain accumulation forecasts; however, we can expect anywhere between 0.50 inch and 1.50 inches of rainfall over the course of next week. By Thursday evening, we're set up for a dry pattern to reemerge which takes us into the weekend with highs back to average.
Mostly clear. South-southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph.
Sunny and hot. Heat index values ranging between 102 and 108. Southwest wind at 5 to 10 mph.
Hazy, hot, and humid with dangerous heat index values 102 to 108. South-southwest wind at 5 to 10 mph.
