Dog days

The triple-digit days are upon us here in Central Texas and can be expected to remain a while, though hopefully not all the way through Labor Day as they have in the past.

But meteorologist Bob Rose of the Lower Colorado River Authority isn’t encouraging:

"…this is Texas weather in mid July and weather conditions are typically consistently hot and dry. Long-range forecasts show little change over the next week or so. Even the tropical Atlantic remains quiet, with little organized activity to speak of. Hot and mostly dry weather will continue in the near term with no significant changes expected any time soon."

Bob’s full take here

UPDATE Officially it was only 98 today, but there were a few backyard thermometers topping 100. National Weather Service forecasting 100s the rest of the weekend and into next week. A heat index tomorrow as high as 106.
