100º heat expected for next 1-2 weeks

AUSTIN (KXAN) - The hottest stretch of weather so far this summer is building in, with 100º heat returning this afternoon and possibly every day through the next two weeks. By the coming weekend, record highs are in the forecast, as hot as 105º in Austin.

African dust is still blowing into the area today and tomorrow, making skies a bit hazy.

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. Rapid evaporation is happening from our soil and on our Highland Lakes. Be careful when boating, as lower water levels will reveal more hazards than we've seen in the past few years.
