Hot and mostly clear skies will be the story once again today. In the weather forecast that continues in a recurring loop we will see the same forecast continue for another 6 days or so. By late next week a breakdown of the upper level ridge should allow for a cool front and perhaps rain chances by next Thursday-Friday. Temperatures will climb into the upper 90s to lower 100s today. Laredo will top out at 104 degrees, Houston at 96, Tyler and Wichita Falls at 99, and Amarillo at a toasty 97 degrees. Heat index values will be 2 to 8 degrees hotter than the air temperature. Dangerous heat index temperatures of 102 to 108 degrees are expected during peak-heating in the shade this afternoon along and east of Interstate 35. A rouge shower will be possible in the Alpine and Davis mountains – otherwise rain is not expected today. Temperatures will cool into the mid to upper 70s tonight. Parts of the D/FW Metroplex and Houston may not get below 80-81 degrees tonight with heat index values staying close to 90 degrees.
