Lots of blazing heat for the rest of the week, hot high pressure will clamp down across most of Texas keeping afternoon highs back into the upper 90s and even a chance to see some triple digit heat by this weekend!
Texas Burn Bans:
More Texas counties across our area have issued burn bans as we continue to see very hot and dry conditions across the state. Aside from Washington Co., all of Southeast Texas will likely stay under burn bans for a while until we get some measureable rainfall.
“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 hard to come by as hot high pressure will dominate much of the week.
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. Otherwise, the rest of the tropics remain all quiet for the next 5 days.
