Record setting heat with heat warnings coming:

High temperatures climb a couple of degrees Friday and a little more Saturday. 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 through Sunday.

Why so hot this week?

We’re stuck underneath a very strong upper-level ridge of high pressure. Think of it as 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 an abnormally hot 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. The drop in temperatures Monday and next week is slight, and we will see an increase in humidity so it will not feel much better.

Use heat safety through the weekend and next week! (Copyright 2022 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)
