The Great Texas Sizzle

While Texas is no stranger to summer heat, this upcoming heatwave is on a whole new level. Meteorologists are predicting record-breaking temperatures that will make you question if you accidentally transported to the surface of the sun. Grab your sun hats, sunblock, and anything else that can provide some respite from the relentless Texas heat.

Hottest Spots on Earth

Move over, Death Valley! Texas is about to show you what it's made of. Certain areas of the state are expected to surpass scorching temperatures found in some of the hottest places on Earth. The thermometer will climb so high that even a cactus might consider relocating to the Arctic for some cool relief.

Cancelled Plans: Weather Edition

Forget about picnics, hiking, and any outdoor activities that don't involve jumping into a pool or sitting directly under an air conditioner. The heatwave will force Texans to rethink their plans and seek solace in air-conditioned havens. Stay cool, my friends.


Melt-Worthy Facts

As the temperature gauge climbs higher and higher, let's take a moment to appreciate some melt-worthy facts. Did you know that the highest temperature ever recorded in Texas was a blistering 120°F (49°C)? That's hotter than your favorite salsa! This upcoming heatwave might just give that record a run for its money.
