It just keeps getting hotter

We've had 15 consecutive days with above-average temperatures and that trend will not only continue, but intensify. Look for a few isolated thunderstorms today and Tuesday with otherwise hot conditions. Higher pressure builds in beginning Wednesday and will get stronger through the weekend. Record high will be possible with daily highs likely above 100. Our drought is very likely to become much more severe this week and 10 counties in our area, including Galveston County, already have declared burn bans.
