It's going to be hot for a while

It's going to be hot for a while

To start off, we broke a daily high record temperature at 3:44 p.m. Saturday by reaching 102º. The record set back in 1945 was 101º. 

This definitely won't be the only time we break 100 in the coming weeks. In fact, we are forecast to break 100 most days next week.

Beyond that, while I can't give you precise temperature, I can tell you that Texas will be much warmer than average the week after. Average high temperatures are about 87º this time of year. Expect anomalously high temperatures to persist, as well as slightly drier conditions.

The reason for all of this, a stubborn area of high pressure will be developing out of northern Mexico, and this will encroach into West Texas, keeping rain at a minimum, and trapping a large warm and dry bubble of air over the area. Until this area of high pressure breaks down, it looks like it will be like this potentially through the first week of June.

A stray shower isn't impossible somewhere through next week, but at this point I'm not banking on much. Catch the latest updates to the forecast tonight at 6 and 9, and I'll be back tomorrow. Stay cool and hydrated and take care of your animals!
