Firecracker hot this 4th of July

Triple digit heat back this week

Very hot weather is coming up over the next few days

Fireworks Forecast:

Warm and dry for the fireworks shows tonight. Mid-80s are expected with mostly clear skies and light winds. However, be ready for that to feel more like the low to mid 90s as a steady south wind will keep us very warm through the night.

Still steamy and warm but clear for tonight's shows
Our 96 today will be shy of our 101 degree temperature from 2009 (Copyright 2021 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)

10-day Forecast:

“July Fry” is back as high pressure takes over and moves temps back to 100 by the weekend. There may be heat warnings issued if the humidity can bring heat index values up to 108 degrees. Rain chances will be very hard to come by as hot high pressure will dominate much of the forecast week.

A very hot week is unfolding

Tracking The Topics:

Hurricane Bonnie is in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Bonnie is only one of two storms that crossed basins, going from the Atlantic/Gulf to the Pacific and kept its name. Usually storms get a name change when they cross basins. But a new policy by the hurricane center lets the storm keep its name if it keeps its tropical storm strength, which Bonnie did. Otto in 2016 was the other storm that kept its name. Make sure you’re prepared for the rest of our hurricane season by getting our Hurricane Tracker App.

Aside from Hurricane Bonnie in the Pacific, we're all quiet across the tropics.
