Dozens of record temperatures are expected to be broken in the south this week as temperatures remain in the 90s and 100s.
Many areas in the south had high daytime temperatures for more than a week in the 1990s and it looks like this trend will continue for at least another week.
Records have been broken from California and Nevada across the Southwest, Southern Plains, along the Gulf Coast and into the Southeast.
Areas that saw temperatures between 100 and 105 degrees on Sunday will still feel the heat on Monday.
Las Vegas, Yuma and Del Rio will again experience temperatures of 100 degrees or more.
Abilene, which has been brooding for more than a week, will see slightly cooler temperatures on Monday with a high forecast of around 96 degrees – but still very hot.
And although it will feel even hotter in some places due to the heat index, it will not be as extreme as on Sunday.
Yuma and Del Rio will see those numbers back in the low 100s.
More cities will see temperatures between 100 and 105 degrees on Tuesday, with most of those temperatures being felt in cities that have already seen temperatures above the century mark.
Other areas will also see temperatures in the 90s from New Mexico, across the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles and the lower Mississippi Valley and along the Gulf Coast.
The heat index is coming back into play throughout the Lone Star State, where Abilene and Del Rio will feel like it’s hotter than 100 degrees.
