100º heat expected for 1-2 weeks

AUSTIN (KXAN) - The hottest stretch of weather so far this summer is building in, with 100º heat returning today, and possibly every day through the next two weeks or more. By the coming weekend, record highs will be threatened.

African dust is still blowing into the area making skies hazy, and the influx of the fine Sahara sand particles will continue this week, with fluctuating concentrations.

Two-week, and even 3-4 week, outlooks from the NOAA Climate Prediction Center paint a high probability of overall hotter/drier than normal weather continuing.

Lake Travis is losing water quickly as the hot, dry weather causes evaporation and the LCRA releases water for downstream irrigation purposes.
