Monday’s 105 the hottest?

Not likely, says LCRA’s Bob Rose:

“For most locations, [Monday] appears to be the hottest day so far this summer with the temperature climbing well above 100 degrees [to 105 F by the end of the day]. Of course, the big question is when is the scorching heat wave going to break? The short answer is, not anytime soon. Today’s forecast data indicates broad high pressure will remain over the region for at last the next 10 days, causing more blistering hot and mostly dry weather.”

At least we had a nice thunderstorm and brief downpour yesterday, and probably more to come.

Scorcher today

National Weather Service is predicting a barn-burner for this afternoon, in the upper nineties for the first time this year. It usually rains on Memorial Day weekend. See the infamous Memorial Day flood so many years ago. This year there’s none forecast until Tuesday night at the earliest. I hope that changes. We need it. It’s been an unusually-dry May heading into a normally-dry summer.

UPDATE:  Prayers answered. Ten minutes of steady downpour at 4:45 p.m. overwhelming the gutters and creating puddles on the patio and in the street. Dropped the temperature more than ten degrees, into the low eighties.
