The weather has been terrible, but at least the heat doesn’t linger.
Temperatures in Texas have been averaging well above 80 degrees Fahrenheit since Monday, according to the National Weather Service, which means we are at the peak of our summer heat wave.
And that’s because of the fact that we’re all still in Texas.
A lot of Texas weather is still going on and most of the state is still dry.
But some areas, like Austin, have seen temperatures spike.
So, we have to ask ourselves, which Texas cities have been hotter than we are right now?
A few cities have seen extreme heat wave-like conditions.
Here are five of the worst.
Austin, Texas The heat has been so intense that many residents are evacuating to escape the city.
The city is just about a half-hour north of Houston and sits at the center of the region’s largest metro area.
At the end of July, the average temperature in Austin was 95 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a little above the heat index we typically associate with Austin.
A few months ago, the city was in a very different place.
According to the Weather Underground, Austin was experiencing its second-hottest June since 2003.
In April, it topped 100 degrees, which was just a few degrees hotter than it was on Friday.
Austin is still not far from Houston, but the city has experienced a significant cooling trend.
As of late, many residents in Austin have been living in their cars, often parked in neighborhoods and parking lots.
Some have also been using heat pumps to fight the heat.
