Triple Digits Returning
Monday July 21st, 2014
We hit 96 Monday - breaking our streak of 6 days of below normal highs. Our normal high is 96 and I've got us in the upper 90s the next two days before triple digits return Thursday through at least Monday of next week! Heat index values will be dangerously high between 100-105. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
TRIPLE DIGIT STATS (Austin Mabry)
So far this year: 2
Average per year: 13
90-DEGREE STATS (Austin Mabry)
Monday was our 50th day of 90+ heat this year
Average per year: 109
Rain chances look to be slim to none over the next week - I'm keeping them out of the forecast for Austin, but Thursday we could see a shower or two develop to our east. At least we caught up with last week's rain. For the month we're 4.14" above average and .44" above for 2014. That said, Lake Travis and Buchanan are already falling after a small rise after the rain.
Meanwhile, the tropics are heating up.
Tropical Depression Two formed Monday afternoon way out in the Atlantic. It's tracking west and could reach the Leeward Islands midweek. Forecasts for the system keep it very weak - but if it does strengthen into a Tropical Storm, it would be "Bertha," the second named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. Track it:
