It should start feeling like August again this week.While highs should reach the mid-90s Monday, temperatures will climb back into the upper 90s by Thursday and Friday. Low temperatures, which in many areas have dropped into the 60s in recent days, will also climb as the week progresses. The average high for this time of year is 96 degrees.“Over the next few days, we’ll gradually warm up,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Jesse Moore. “The good news is there’s no record-breaking heat on the way.”The hotter weather is also bringing drier weather. The next chance for rain isn’t expected until Sunday and Moore said it is too early to say if more rain will return next week.With Monday’s warmer temperatures and light winds, conditions are favorable for high ozone levels Monday afternoon. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has issued an air quality alert for Monday afternoon. Being outdoors on high ozone days can impact some individuals with breathing difficulties.
