A Heat Advisory is in effect for parts of North and Central Texas until 7 PM Tuesday. Maximum heat indices will reach 105 to 110 degrees in many locations. Hot temperatures will increase the risk of heat related illnesses. Take extra precautions if you work or plan to spend any amount of time outside this weekend. Stay cool and stay safe!
The heat continues this week...but the good news is that we will end the week a few degrees cooler than we started the week. It won't be much relief, but a few degrees can make a difference. The Heat Advisory remains in effect until 7 pm Tuesday. Most of the week will remain hot and dry, with only low chances for showers and thunderstorms for portions of our eastern counties Friday afternoon/evening. Overnight lows will generally be in the mid to upper 70s to near 80.
Since the beginning of July, there have been 8 rain days at Waco Regional Airport, but the rainfall total is only 0.07". This would rank as the 2nd driest July-August period on record. The June total of 0.04" ranked as the 7th driest on record. There has always been at least a sprinkle of rain in Waco during August, but there have been six Augusts with no measurable rainfall: 1902, 1910, 1924, 1929, 1952, and 1999. The rainfall total so far this month is 0.03", which would tie for the 8th driest August.
