Good evening from Click2Houston.com.
Today marked 50 years since a rocket shot three men off the earth and into space. Those three men -- Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins -- were bound for the moon.
This entire week, we’re marking the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with special coverage at Click2Houston.com/Apollo. We’ll also air an anniversary special on KPRC 2 at 7 p.m. Wednesday. You can get more details in our Apollo section.
Let’s get you caught up on today's news. We’ll start with weather.
Highs reached 96 degrees at Bush Intercontinental Airport today and feels-like temps hit 109 in spots. A Heat Advisory may be issued Wednesday. The bottom line: It's hot and humid so be careful as this will continue into the weekend. Evening temperatures will be in the 80s. The Full Moon rises as the sun goes down tonight and should look spectacular. The tropics remain quiet as Barry remnants move across Illinois. Check Frank's full forecast here.
