Increasing temperatures can be expected today and over the weekend with inland highs approaching or exceeding 100 degrees. Heat index values are expected to approach or exceed 108 degrees on Saturday and again on Sunday, and a Heat Advisory will likely be needed for parts or possibly all of Southeast Texas. All heat safety precautions should be taken during this potentially dangerous heat event.
At this time, it looks like a more southerly wind flow beginning on Monday might end up keeping a majority of heat index temperatures below the 108 degree Heat Advisory threshold. Whether or not a Heat Advisory is in effect, all heat safety precautions should continue to be taken at the start of next week.
