Tropical development being monitored in the Eastern Pacific

Summer scorcher in the South

The southern Plains could see excessive heat later this week, with temperatures nearing or exceeding 100 degrees.

The FOX Forecast Center said the early-summer excessive heat will mostly be driven by a strengthening ridge of high pressure across the Texas-Mexico border as an area of low pressure spins off to the north, which will keep areas from the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes to the Northeast stormy and cloudy.

The scorching temperatures will begin on Wednesday, with areas of South Texas experiencing the hot weather. By Thursday, temperatures at or above 100 degrees are also expected for more areas of Texas, with both Houston and Dallas getting close to the century mark.
