AUSTIN, Texas – This July is officially the hottest July 24 on record, with an average temperature of 90.8 degrees. It edged out last July by a narrow margin, but we don’t see that changing until the end of the month, with more triple-digit warmth in the forecast.
In fact, you can’t say much about this prediction. It will be hot and mostly dry each afternoon with afternoon temperatures in the 104- to 105-degree range.
There’s a 10% chance of rain southeast of Austin due to “sea storms” off the Gulf on Tuesday and Wednesday, but otherwise the forecast is completely dry. We expect a high temperature of around 104 in Austin on Tuesday. Some of the “coolest” spots in the Hill Country will stay in the 90s.
Regardless, keep up with your warm weather precautions and be sure to stay hydrated!
Heat aside, we’re expecting dappled sunshine this week as Saharan dust clouds blow into Central Texas. We don’t expect major impacts on our air quality, but the air quality index may fall into the “moderate” category on Wednesday and Thursday.
Wildfire danger also continues this week in Central Texas with a rapidly worsening drought and more hot, dry weather. All of our KVUE counties are now included in burn bans, so please avoid outdoor burning.
The KVUE Weather Team will continue to closely monitor this developing forecast.
