HOUSTON – Hot and steamy weather will continue for the entire week. Take advantage of the morning and later evening as afternoon temperatures in the 90s will feel like the triple digits.

Weather is not only steamy but it is dusty. Another batch of Saharan dust is lower air quality. Anyone that struggled with the dust this past weekend should prepare for a repeat for the rest of the week.

An area of mid-level high pressure will be moving from the Gulf to almost directly over the Houston region this week. That means sinking air and fewer chances for rain during that stretch. Rain chances return as the high moves farther to the west and allowing showers chances to return in time for the July 4.
