High’s today were not as hot as yesterday. But with the humidity it certainly felt just as hot. Here’s a look at the high temperatures from today.
Here’s a look at high temperatures from yesterday (Monday). Dallas Love Field and Granbury made it to 100 degrees yesterday. This is the first 100 degree reading in the metroplex this year.
More areas will reach 100 degrees later this week. Thursday will be the hottest day this week. Here’s a look at high temperatures for Thursday.
Here in the Metroplex we will be right at 100 with our western counties being at 100 or above, and to the east becoming just slightly cooler. Most of this week will continue to be sunny so make sure to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen if you are going to be outside for extended periods of time.
Dallas Love Field and Granbury both hit 100 yesterday, but DFW Airport has yet to hit 100. If DFW hits 100 on Thursday, that will be our first 100° day. How does this compare to last year?
The first 100° day last year was June 24th. If we hit 100 on Thursday, this will be 11 days earlier than last year. In June of 2012, we had 5 days that were at or above 100° ; but the total number of days of 100 degree or above weather in 2012 was 34.
As the weekend nears, there will be an increase in clouds allowing temperatures to cool off just a few degrees. These clouds will be coming from the Southwest with warm, semi-moist air from the Gulf of Mexico.
As these clouds move into the area, there is an isolated chance of showers in the Metroplex on Monday and Tuesday.
These storms will not affect temperatures. We will continue to stay Hot and Sunny.
