Children, the elderly, outdoor workers, and those without access to air conditioning are typically at the highest risk when temperatures soar.
AccuWeather Global Weather Center – June 10, 2022 – The excessive heat that’s been gripping much of the Lone Star State is about to get even more intense, is poised to smash temperature records — and is far from over, AccuWeather forecasters warn.
Some of the highest temps this weekend are forecast for Austin, which is expected to reach 107 on Saturday and 108 on Sunday, both marks that would shatter the all-time temperature records for those dates. AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures on those days are forecast to hit 108 and 110, respectively, there.
The overall weather pattern has been largely stuck in place for more than a week, which has allowed heat to build across the south-central United States and rounds of severe weather to target the Plains.
“San Antonio has been sweltering in record heat for many consecutive days, with new records officially established from this past Sunday to Tuesday, including back-to-back readings of 104 F on Monday and Tuesday,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Bill Deger said.
On Wednesday, the city tied its record high temperature of 101 F and matched that mark again on Thursday.
