Sunday Ties 1980 Record For August 22nd

Sunday’s high of 105 didn’t break the August 22nd record but it was close. When the official DFW Airport mercury touched 105 degrees Sunday afternoon, it tied the 30-year-old mark set during the monster heat wave of 1980.  This month, we’ve touched triple-digits every day but one since the last day of July.  And it could happen again today because the National Weather Service is expecting a high of 106.  But then a front of cooler air is due to move across the Red River, meaning our highs might be no warmer than the mid-to-upper 90s for the rest of the week.
