If you’ve lived through a summer in Houston, August is one of our hottest months and this week is living up to that. Thankfully, splash and dash showers are staying in the forecast but rain chances will be low. Afternoon highs will crank up into the mid and even a few upper 90s again for Wednesday. When you add in the humidity, it’ll feel more like the low 100s outside. Make sure you have a way to find some A/C or shade. There’s a chance to see some scattered strong storms tomorrow afternoon as a disturbance will swing around that hot high pressure.

This week we have a very typical early August forecast, hot and humid with daily rain chances in the afternoon. Be ready for more Southeast Texas heat. Heat index readings will stay above 100 degrees so this will be some serious August heat for the rest of the week. As we head into the weekend, the hot high pressure starts to have more influence meaning afternoons in the mid 90s and rain chances down to around 10%

More blazing heat is here for the rest of the week!

The week ahead sees the rain chances dropping into the 10-20% range for any days where there is rain. Take advantage of our warm and muggy mornings when temperatures are easier to take on.
