Dangerous Heat Expected This Week

(KNOE 8 WEATHER) - Today will be dry and hot with a slight chance of rain showers if you live south of I-20. The high will be 93 and the heat index will be close to 100. Winds will be from the ESE at 3-5 mph. Strong high pressure in the upper atmosphere will move eastward from the western part of the country and that will keep our rain chances to a minimum all week. We are looking at a 20% chance for rain Monday-Thursday. Temperatures this week will be on an upward trend as that ridge amplifies which means close to 100 degrees isn't out of the realm of possibilities later this week.
