Heat wave continues with even hotter temps next week

Forecast

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Afternoon highs topped out above 100 degrees 10 of the last 11 days – Saturday being no different with a high of 104 degrees in Austin.

Sunday will look and feel very similar to what we had today. High temperatures will creep above seasonal normals into the low 100s (Austin forecast high: 102 degrees) under mainly dry skies. Mostly to partly cloudy skies will stretch overhead in the morning with more sunshine expected to break through by early afternoon. Moderate levels of humidity bring heat index values to 104-106 degrees, emphasizing the importance of staying hydrated and keeping your pets cool.

High pressure will remain dominant over Texas, keeping the rain out and the heat locked in. Only a few stray showers could make it in our far eastern counties in the afternoon – but I wouldn’t hold your breath on any significant rain. The majority of us will stay dry each day with the mentioned high pressure keeping the storm track well north and atmospheric lift at a minimum.

Despite a record-active start to the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, there is currently no activity in the Atlantic basin – a much-needed break in what is forecast to be one of the busiest seasons on record.

Please keep in mind heat wave safety during this period.

Summer Fan Drive

Due to the pandemic, many in our area’s vulnerable population will be stuck indoors this summer without air conditioning. Family Eldercare will need thousands of fans to meet the demand. KXAN is asking our viewers to support this life-saving effort by making an online donation here.
