HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL BE BETWEEN 102 TO 107 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON. THE ELEVATED HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST THURSDAY AS TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 90S COMBINE WITH DEW POINT VALUES IN THE MIDDLE TO UPPER 70S.”
This is the warning from weather.com for our area. They aren’t kidding either. I had to walk out to the mail box and even at 9AM it was mid 70’s with high humidity. Right now, 11:30 AM its 81 degrees with 79% humidity. And we will hit our high of warmer temperature later today. The air is still, not much breeze, and it is overcast. Those clouds seems to be holding in the warmth and the humidity. And later it will just get more oppressive than it is now. Not my favorite weather. Not one of those things I love about Texas. But it is early summer in Austin. It won’t get cooler for months.
And no rain in the forecast. But we might hit a high of 98 by Saturday. We’ll wait and see.
