Our first heat advisories of the week start today
The heat advisories go into effect from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. today. No heat alert for Houston on Monday, but it’s highly likely that all of southeast Texas will fall into a heat advisory on Tuesday. Saharan dust is still with us bringing hazy skies and reduced air quality.
We are on track to establish the hottest July on record in Houston. Our records date back to 1889. Temperatures have been in the 90s above 100+ on all but three days this month. We also set the record for hottest June in Houston. The other thing to watch is how many 100 degree days we have this month. 1980 set the record with 18,100 degree days. So far we’ve had 9, which puts us in fourth place behind 2000 and 1998.
The high-pressure dome that brought seven straight days of unrelenting heat to Southeast Texas two weeks ago is back. We will have more triple digit heat with the heat index climbing to 108-110 degrees. Heat advisories will likely be issued Tuesday for all of southeast Texas.
We could see another triple digit heat streak this week, maybe seven, returning to our 100 degree temperature on Sunday.
No tropical development is expected in the Atlantic next week. Make sure you’re prepared for the rest of our hurricane season by getting our Hurricane Tracker app.
