Record-breaking Heat Continues In Texas

STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Aug. 17 (UPI) — A tropical storm or a strong cold front are the only ways to bring substantial heat and drought relief to the beleaguered state of Texas, a weather expert said.

Unfortunately, neither event is on the horizon, Meteorologist Brian Edwards of AccuWeather.com said.

Houston has become the latest city in Texas to break a 1980 record for the greatest number of consecutive 100-degree days, AccuWeather.com reported Wednesday.

The weather service said Tuesday marked the 16th straight day that temperatures soared past the 100-mark in Houston.

Two other Texas towns, Wichita Falls and Waco, broke records earlier while Dallas came within two days of tying its 1980 record of 42 days of consecutive 100-degree temperatures.

Temperatures in South Florida hit 90 degrees for the 38th day in a row Tuesday surpassing a record set back in 1952, The Miami Herald reported.

No end to the heat wave is in sight with the National Weather Service forecast calling for highs of at least 90 degrees in South Florida through next Tuesday.
