Limit outdoor activity as "feels like" temperatures soar this Sunday
HOUSTON – Another heat advisory has been issued as two Southeast Texas set of tied record high minimum temperatures.
First the heat advisory, issued for a limited area of our region with Galveston and Chambers counties expected to reach heat index temperatures of 109-114 degrees. The advisory is in place until 7pm.
The rest of the Houston metro is NOT included in the advisory but conditions are close enough with high humidity and temperatures in the mid to upper 90s to warrant extra precautions to limit outdoor plans and strenuous activity while drinking plenty of water.
We started with warm temps this morning with Galveston apparently setting a new Record High Minimum temperature of 86 degrees, beating the old record of 84 set in 2017.
Hobby airport appears to have tied the Record High minimum temperature of 81, set back in 1981.
Highest temps so far today include 98 degrees in Brenham and El Campo while rain cooled air is keeping other temps in the 80s and low 90s.
Scattered showers have been present throughout the morning and continue this afternoon, moving quickly from Southwest to northeast dropping anywhere from trace amounts area wide to as much as a 3rd of an inch in Pearland and in Third Ward Houston.
Temperatures next week will stay mostly in the mid 90s with chances of rain each day. Tropical moisture moving into the Gulf will likely increase rain chances starting Friday and through the weekend.
