HOUSTON (KIAH) — Widespread heat advisories and excessive heat warnings cover most of the South Central U.S., including almost all of Texas. That means the heat will be dangerous. Parts of North Texas could see temperatures reach or even exceed 110 degrees!

Closer to home, Houston is under a heat advisory Tuesday and Wednesday as temperatures will top out at or slightly above 100, but it could feel as hot as 108 during the hottest part of the afternoon.

If there’s any good news (“good” is a stretch), it’s the fact that temperatures should ever so slightly back down at the end of this week. Also, starting Thursday, we’ll be in a pattern that favors very spotty showers and storms during the afternoons.
