Brief drop in humidity ahead of the hottest feels-like temperatures of the year so far

Forecast

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Temperatures weren’t AS hot Friday, but we still reached 94 at Camp Mabry in Austin.

It gets hotter Juneteenth Saturday, but humidity drops a little bit providing some slight relief. High temperatures will head for the upper 90s during the afternoon, which is is going to make for a toasty start to Austin FC’s home opener kicking off at 8pm.

An Ozone Action Alert Day has been declared for the Austin-metro Saturday due to hot, stagnant air trapping pollution near the surface. High levels of ground pollution and ozone could be unhealthy for sensitive groups – ex. children, elderly, people with respiratory illnesses, etc. Those who fall into these categories should avoid any extensive or strenuous outdoor activity… and all should try to limit unnecessary travel and vehicle idling when possible.

Potential Tropical Cyclone #3 has yet to fully form into a tropical system, but is expected to do so later this evening as it moves northward toward the Louisiana coastline.

We’re watching the arrival of some showers and storms, but not until after the weekend.

First Warning

Some of the hottest “feels-like” temperatures of the year are possible on Father’s Day and Monday with dew points approaching the mid 70s and temperatures in the upper 90s. This could make it feel like it’s 110 or hotter, and potentially trigger a Heat Advisory for many areas.
