Sunday was the all-time hottest day for Huntsville, Texas, as excessive heat continues to start the workweek

A high temperature of 111 degrees broke the all-time record high in Huntsville, Texas

Excessive Heat Warnings continue for parts of Texas Monday after a sweltering Sunday.

Huntsville, Texas, broke its all-time record high by 3 degrees Sunday afternoon when it hit 111. The previous record of 108 had stood since 2000 and records go back to 1903.

College Station, Texas, also hit 111 degrees, tying its second-hottest temperature on record and breaking its old daily record for July 10 of 109 degrees from 1917.

Houston's Hobby Airport and Bush Intercontinental Airport broke daily record highs as well.


These already-hot temperatures will be even more uncomfortable when combined with the high humidity across the region.


The excessive heat has prompted forecasters to issue heat alerts through the early part of this week. 



In Texas, relentless heat has continued to provide places like San Antonio with their hottest start to the summer. Saturday’s high temperature in San Antonio made it the city’s 31st day of the year with 100-degree temperatures or higher.


Texas' temperatures will continue to soar above 100 degrees, while highs in Louisiana will approach the century mark.
