HOUSTON — Winds may gust as high as 25 mph today. These windy and hot  conditions will last through the holiday weekend.

The wind is whipping up the surf along the coast. Swimming conditions will be dangerous for the inexperienced and young. Watch those kids closely!

Take breaks in the A/C to allow your bodies core temp to drop back down.

Check on each other. Small children and the elderly are most susceptible to heat exhaustion. 


By the mid part of next week rain chances creep back in to the forecast.
