It was another hot June day today across the Gulf Coast, with highs in the mid 90′s in most areas.

Dewpoints in the upper 60′s kept the heat index in check. The real heat returns tomorrow and increases to near historic levels by the end of the week. Heat index values could reach 105 degrees on Tuesday.

Daytime highs will be in the low 100′s with heat index values over 110 degrees by the second half of the week. With this heat wave, we could see all-time records set or tied for June (103) and the highest temp ever (105). Rain chances stay low. 

We saw a few isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. Things trend drier again on Tuesday and Wednesday. No tropical activity is expected for the next 5 days.
