The Weather


The High yesterday 96°  The Low this morning 74°  Rainfall at the airport about noon Monday was .04 in.                                        

 Today: A 30% chance of a shower in the area this afternoon, otherwise just partly sunny and a high around 98°. Heat index values will be about 104° with only a weak E-NE 5 mph breeze.

Tonight: A 30% chance of a shower before 7pm, otherwise partly cloudy and down to 74° with the 5 mph E-SE wind.

Wednesday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 100° and still only a wisp of an east wind at 5 mph.

Overnight, mostly clear with a low around 75° and E-SE south wind at 5-10 mph.

The rest of the week: On Thursday we see a continued rise in temperatures, topping out at 101° with mostly calm wind. Friday will bring more of the same, up around 100°.

The hot weather is a result of a high pressure ridge over most of Texas. It is pretty normal weather for August and it appears that it will be with us until early next week when the ridge moves further to the east.  The NWS meteorologists tell us that Central Texas will see much elevated grass fire conditions Thursday thru much of next week.
