    To start off our week, we will have another hot and sunny day. There will be a few clouds that build up this afternoon, but the rain chances are slim to none. Temperatures will once again be very hot. Highs will reach the mid 90s. Some area north of I-10 could reach the upper 90s. Heat indices will also be in the triple digits. A heat advisory will likely be issued. If you are planning on spending time outdoors, I recommend taking caution in the heat.

    Through the rest of today we are still under a heat advisory.  That is set to expire tonight at 8pm shortly after sunset. This advisory is due to forecast highs in the mid-90s and dewpoints in the 70s. These two combined yield heat indices of 108-112 degrees this afternoon. Be sure to use caution if you are outside.
