Triple digits return for the 4th of July! Miss the 90s yet?
The past week has been a slight window of relief from the heat, even if that relief came in the form of temperatures in the mid-90s. High pressure is building over the Brazos Valley, inhibiting the chance for rain/thunderstorm development over the next week. Expect temperatures to climb again to the triple digits, and the heat index temps climb even higher to around 105°. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some heat advisories issued towards the middle of the upcoming week. Expect drought conditions to worsen over the next week.
Burn bans are in effect for the following counties: Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Leon, Madison, Milam, Montgomery, Robertson, San Jacinto, Walker, and Waller. It may be smart to leave fireworks to the professionals this year. We will see some breezy winds this week, allowing any startup fires to spread easily. We’ve seen fires popping up all across the Brazos Valley, especially along roadways. Please be aware of your local government’s burn bans, and be safe this weekend!
