Slight relief from triple-digit temperatures for most of this week.
DALLAS — Relief has arrived in North Texas! But it won’t last forever…
Here’s the latest outlook:
- Triple digits stay away for now
- Mornings are much more comfortable this week
- 100s return for Labor Day Weekend
Relief is here! For now…
While it may not feel like fall, it will continue to feel much better than recently!
Low temps Tuesday morning will be a mixture of 60s and 70s.
Highs Tuesday afternoon will be in the 90s again, but may be a degree or two above normal.
Summer heat stats
So far in this summer of 2023, DFW has hit 100 degrees or hotter a whopping 47 times. That’s more than double the average for a summer.
That ties the total from all of last summer and is the 6th most on record.
While this summer may not end up being the hottest on record overall, the heat has been quite intense the second half of this summer. DFW is now second only to 1980 in the number of days with highs at or above 105 degrees.
Fire danger and burn bans continue
Elevated fire danger will continue for all of North Texas for the foreseeable future. Because of ongoing drought, hot temps, low humidity, and breezy conditions, any fires that get started could spread quickly.
Please continue to practice fire safety!
All of these locations are under burn bans, so please respect those burn bans. Also, use extreme caution with anything that causes sparks or open flames.
While we will still be hot, we’ll get a break from the record heat and triple digits for most the workweek.
The mornings will also be much more comfortable as well with lows well down in the 70s.
Unfortunately, 100s look like they will make a return for Labor Day Weekend.
