Here's why you'll want to limit your time outside the next several days

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The temperature rose to 100 in Houston Wednesday afternoon. The heat ridge responsible for the heat isn't moving anytime soon so we expect the temp to rise to or slightly above 100 right through the weekend. At least our humidity levels will fall a bit so a Heat Advisory may not be needed. Sort of a dry heat Houston style.

By next week, rain chances will rise as a rare August cool front moves our way. Rain chances are in the 30-40% range next Monday through Wednesday. And it now looks like the front will move far enough south to drop humidity levels and temps a little late next week.
