Buckle up! We’re expecting some of the hottest June weather since 2011...
One year that Texans never want to compare the weather to is 2011 when widespread drought, heat, and large wildfires plagued the state. Unfortunately, the next 10 days of weather in Central Texas will be some of the hottest we’ve seen in the month of June since 2011. Our forecast average high for the next 10 days is 100.8° which isn’t going to break into the top-10 list for hottest 10-day period of time in June, but it would be the hottest 10-day period of time in June since the end of June 2011. Today’s weather will be about the same as yesterday’s with less (but not zero) morning cloud cover giving way to a lot of sunshine midday and into the afternoon. Highs east of I-35 in the mid-90s will be close to and even over 100° along and west of I-35. We’re forecasting Waco’s first 100° in 260 days and the first June 100° day since 2018. Heat index values will be as high as 105° but thankfully south winds will gust as high as about 30 MPH to make it feel just a little bit cooler outside.
High pressure is in place across Texas and Mexico and while it’ll be slowly strengthening and meandering a bit, high pressure will not break at all. What does that mean for our weather? Well, you probably know the answer already... We’re expecting hot and dry weather for the foreseeable future! Highs will stay close to, if not over, 100° every single day through the end of next week and likely beyond too. There’s no cold fronts in the forecast and there’s no appreciable rain chances either. As far as record temperatures go, we’ll come within a degree of the record highs Tuesday, Friday, and next Monday.
