Hot Hazy and Humid Afternoon on National Ice Cream Day
A hot hazy and humid afternoon in the Crossroads. We did see a shower or two as expected north and east of Victoria. One thing everyone is dealing with this afternoon is African dust. Saharan dust will be around for the next day or so. The upper high will continue to get stronger over us in the next seven days. As a result, temperatures will be on the rise into the middle to upper 90s daily.
Heat index values will also be high between 105-110 daily. The upper high will also prevent the crossroads and South Texas from not seeing much rain in the next seven days. As you are out and about the next seven days, be sure to practice heat safety. In the tropics, Subtropical Beryl remains in the open Atlantic moving NE at 6 mph. A subtropical system means it has the characteristics of a tropical cyclone and general area of low pressure. It will likely fizzle in the next day or so.
