Record Heat in Houston

Summer-like heat and temperatures rocket into the 90’s in the Houston area. The summer-like heat arrived early in Southeast Texas. It was 91 degrees around 2:30 p.m. at the Hines Water Wall Park near the Galleria today.

For now, there is a slight rain chance, 20%  forecast for Monday and Tuesday.  Daytime temperatures are forecast to hit 90 degrees or higher.  If outside, wear sunscreen, comfortable clothing and a hat. Stay hydrated with water.  Stay in the shade or seek air-conditioned, indoor places.

Outdoor zone levels are forecast to be higher in the afternoons.  If you have respiratory problems, stay indoors.  Conserve energy by carpooling, walking or riding a bicycle.
