Finally Cracking the Century Mark

It's official !! Today was the hottest day of the year so far as the Angelina County Airport hit 100 degrees for the first time this year. Not only did it hit 100 degrees, but it exceeded the century mark as we topped out at 102. The record for this day was 105, set back in 1934. So while no records were set, we did finally crack the triple digit mark. Nacogdoches topped out at 100 for the second straight day.

While it was certainly hot here, it was even hotter in the northern part of the state. Dallas Fort Worth International Airport hit 105 this afternoon, while Waco came in at 103. Look for the heat to hold its grip on us as a ridge of high pressure continues to stay put over the Southern Plains for the next couple of days.
