Record breaking heat possible today
We're in for another hot weekend, including record temperatures likely today!
The trend from yesterday continues. We either tied or broke high temp records and Bush/IAH, Hobby and Galveston.
The record for today at Bush/IAH is 95 degrees and the forecast is for 96. Similar high temps are forecast for the region as a dome of high pressure in the upper atmosphere continues to be in control with sinking and heated air.
No appreciable amount of rain is in the ten day forecast period but we will have relief next week.
A front is on track to push through Monday into Tuesday. That front will cool our highs into the upper 80s and our lows into the low to mid 60!
Fiona is now a post tropical storm impacting Newfoundland with 90mph winds.
Tropical Storm Ian formed last night in the Caribbean and is forecast to impact the West coast of Florida as possibly a major Category 3 storm by Tuesday night into Thursday.
Locally we have an Air Quality Alert in place again today.
