Dangerous heat continues with no relief next 7+ days

Forecast

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Today marked our 5th day in a row and 26th of the year of triple digit heat. And Friday? Well, get ready for day #27.

Austin is likely to reach 102 degrees with humidity bringing heat index values to 104-106 degrees Friday afternoon. Mostly sunny and dry conditions will stretch county to county with nearest rain activity expected to stay east of Fayette County.

A stubborn area of high pressure will remain locked over Texas for the next week (if not, longer). This will result in a ‘rinse & repeat’ weather pattern – hot, dry and sunny.

Any good news? Despite an active start to the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, there is currently no major 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.
