Tropical Storm Cristobal continues to churn closer and closer to southern Louisiana while SE Texas sits on the clean side of the storm. Meaning, we’ll see a mostly hot and dry forecast with only a slight chance of storms in some of the outer bands of Cristobal moving through. While some isolated quick downpours are possible, most of the region will sit in the mid-90s with feels like temps in the low 100s. In fact, we’ll be going into a stretch of our hottest days of the year next week as highs will top near 100 until late week, with feels like temps around 105-110!

Get ready for toasty temperatures next week as an area of high pressure moves into the region. Our anticipated highs in the 98 degree range Tuesday through Thursday will threaten record highs for this time of the year. High humidity will push our “feels like” temperatures into dangerous territory much of the week.

10-day forecast

After the Cristobal effect through Monday, we head into a dry and hot spell for the rest of the ten day forecast period with only slight rain chances.
