Austin weather: Triple digit heat continues for July 4th

Happy 4th of July

We are talking plenty of sunshine and heat today with the triple digit streak rolling on at eight days. We will be in the 80s for the parades this morning and this evening for the firework shows with a nice breeze. 

Rain chances are showing up late Friday and Saturday as the storms slide in from a front in North Texas. It is looking more and more likely we could get much needed rain next week from Hurricane Beryl.
