September starts with stretch of near 100-degree heat

AUSTIN (KXAN) — We launch into the new month of September with uncomfortable heat as highs stay close to 100-degrees for the next several days.

Wednesday will likely be our 2nd consecutive day of 100-degree temps this week and our 6th day for the year. High humidity levels will allow heat index values to reach 103-107 degrees across the area – be sure to stay hydrated, take breaks in the A/C, etc. to avoid any heat-related problems.

Rain chances will be minimal both Wednesday and Thursday with only a few isolated showers possible, mainly east of I-35. A couple of stray showers will be possible elsewhere but better moisture levels and proximity to the sea breeze will mean a slightly better chance of showers in our eastern counties.

While summer is not officially over, meteorological summer runs from June 1 to August 31. During this period, hourly temperatures averaged out to cooler than normal values for the first time in 14 years at Camp Mabry.
