Forecast: Near record heat Wednesday

KVUE Storm Team Forecast

Day 10 in the books of triple digit heat for the Austin area. This tie us with the 28th-longest triple-digit streak on record. The only problem is, triple digit temperatures remain in the 7 Day forecast through Monday at this time. If this does pan out as forecast, we could tie with the 7th-longest triple digit stretch  recorded at Camp Mabry. All eyes on the thermometer Wednesday afternoon as we are expected to reach a high of 105 degrees. Wednesday's daily record is 105, which was set just last year, 2019. A gradual decrease in temperatures will occur beginning Thursday as the ridge of high pressure which has kept dangerous heat in place for many finally shifts west. This will allow a trough of low pressure to influence our weather pattern beginning early next week. Temperatures will drop to the upper 90s with small rain chances returning.  

Weather Outlook: 

TUESDAY NIGHT:
Increasing clouds. South-southeast wind at 10 to 20 mph.
LOW: 79°

WEDNESDAY: 
Some morning clouds, then mostly sunny skies with near-record heat. South-southeast wind at 5 to 15 mph.
HIGH: 104°

THURSDAY:
