Record setting heat with heat advisory coming:

Buckle in for some serious summer heat headed into the weekend. High temperatures climb a couple of degrees every day through Friday. Humidity streams in as well with a steady south wind bringing a heat index climbing to 108 to 110 degrees. Once we hit that 108 degree heat index, a heat advisory will be issued for southeast Texas. Record highs are also possible starting tomorrow.

Temperatures will come close to setting records the next few days. (Copyright 2022 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)

Why So Hot This Week:

We’re stuck underneath a very strong upper level ridge of high pressure. Think of it like an upside down bowl, the heat inside that bowl is trapped. High pressure sinks the air and that compressed air is hot. The more it heats up, the stronger the high gets, and that means highs will spike to 100 degrees Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

10-day Forecast:

This is a brutal outlook. Make sure you practice heat safety! Drink plenty of water, and limit strenuous outdoor activity during the hottest parts of the day. Remember to never leave children, pets, or disabled adults inside of a vehicle. Even next week temperatures will be in the mid and upper 90s next week. Record highs are possible this weekend too. Saturday’s record is 101 degrees from 1902.
