“The energy grid could be under stress with air conditioners and fans running consistently to try to keep people comfortable,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Paul Walker said.
AccuWeather Global Weather Center – June 3, 2022 – June is already off to a toasty start for much of the south-central United States following an abnormally warm May for the region. AccuWeather
Beginning Sunday, a northward shift in the jet stream will allow unseasonably hot air to push out of Mexico and seep across portions of the South Central states as well as the Four Corners region. Areas from New Mexico and Texas north into portions of Colorado and Kansas will all encounter temperatures on the rise by Sunday.
While many areas will watch the mercury rise above normal on Sunday, forecasters say the most intense portion of this hot air will settle over a large swath of Texas. This unseasonable heat will remain in place through much of the early week, with temperatures in many places set to hit triple-digit readings.
Temperatures will be more typical of the height of summer, rather than early summer, through early next week, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Paul Walker.
