CENTRAL TEXAS — The dangerous heat is coming as high pressure builds from the west. More sunshine, no rain chances will be theme across our area for the next several days. A heat advisory begins this afternoon for Bosque, Falls, Freestone, Hill, Limestone, Mclennan, Navarro counties. Tomorrow afternoon, the heat advisory will go into effect for Bell, Coryell, Leon, Milam, Mills, and Robertson counties.

Feels like temperatures could reach 106 degrees this afternoon for some of us as the heat and humidity work together. South breezes will stick around this afternoon at 10 to 15 mph. The heat wave will peak early next week as feels like temperatures could reach 110 degrees across the area. Remember your heat precautions. Frequent breaks in the shade if you're working outside, limit your time outside, and drink plenty of water before and while you are outside. Most importantly, check on those who are sensitive to the heat and never leave children or pets unattended in vehicles. Check out these heat safety tips.

A slight easing in the heat looks possible by the end of next week as tropical moisture tries to work in. It will still feel hot, but that should keep high temperatures in the upper 90s. Rain chances may return next weekend, too.
