Central Texas weather will return to “seasonally hot and dry” this week, according to a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Eric Martello, senior meteorologist, said temperatures are going to creep back up into the mid- to upper 90s this week as the cooler air that brought upper 70s and lower 80s to the area over the last several days is pushed out by a system from the west.

While Martello said temperatures aren’t expected to reach triple digits, they’re forecasted to peak at 98 degrees.

Today the high is expected to reach 92 with a low around 70 degrees tonight.

Monday’s temperatures are forecasted to be 92 during the day with a low of 71 Monday night. Tuesday’s temperatures will hold steady with a high of 93 and a low of 72.

On Wednesday temperatures will warm up even more with a high near 95 and a low of 73. Temperatures will continue to increase into Thursday with a high of 97 and a low of 75. They’ll peak Friday with a high near 98 and a low of 75.

There’s no rain in the forecast for this week as the area gets back to its familiar “dry August heat,” Martello said.
