Triple Digit Heat?

 

Thursday, August 27th, 2015


BETTER AIR QUALITY

We made it through our first Ozone Action Day of the year, and fortunately, the air we breathe will be a little cleaner on Friday.  Our air quality will improve from "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" to "Moderate."


TRIPLE DIGITS?

Dry air cools more efficiently at night (hence comfy morning lows), but it also heats up more rapidly than humid air.  Guess what?  We'll be enjoying low humidity Friday...and that could be the key to sneaking up to 100 for the 21st time this year.  The good news?  The heat index will be no higher than the actual temperature with dew points in the comfortable 50s!  Any records?  Absolutely not.  The record for August 28th just so happens to be the hottest temp on record for Austin - Camp Mabry.  We hit 112 that day!  (We also hit 112 back on September 5th, 2000).  After Friday...I have temps gently dropping into the upper then mid 90s over the next week.


FRIDAY NIGHT RIVALS

We kick off a season of covering high school football games on KEYE by going live from Kelly Reeves Stadium in Northwest Austin for the matchup of Georgetown vs. Westwood.

Kickoff: 95 Sunny

Halftime: 89 Clear

Postgame: 84 Clear and comfy

Wind: SE 5

Stop by the stadium and say hi!  Bob Ballou, Hema Muller and I will be broadcasting live at 5 & 6!


THE DROUGHT

Central Texas saw some improvement in Milam, Bastrop and Caldwell Counties where Severe Drought had developed.  There's still a small area of severe drought in Caldwell County, but Milam and Bastrop have improved to Moderate.  Check the drought here:

THE TROPICS

Tropical Storm Erika crossed over the Lesser Antilles and continues tracking westward through the Caribbean.  The National Hurricane Center is still forecasting Erika to strengthen to a hurricane near the coast of Florida, possibly making landfall, then skirting east of the coast and possibly brushing the Carolinas.  The track could and likely will change.  Check out our Tropics Tracker: http://bit.ly/keyeTropics
