After 11 days at triple digits and Wednesday's record-tying high temp of 106, Austin is forecast to reach as high as 107 every day through Sunday, according to local weather reports.
A heat advisory is in effect, with residents encouraged to stay indoors or stay well hydrated and take frequent breaks if you spend time outdoors.
"Today will be our 12th consecutive day in the triple digits," KXAN Austin forecasters report. "By next Wednesday, as the streak continues, 18 consecutive 100° days would move us into a tie for the 5th-longest heatwave in Camp Mabry's record books (Bob Rose/LCRA). The longest 100° streak in Austin was 27 consecutive days in July and August 2011 — a year that featured 90 total days in the triple digits."
The scorching temps in Texas, which get even hotter towards El Paso, are part of a national heatwave caused by a shift in the jet stream and settling over the West through Monday, with highs that reach a blistering 116 in Yuma, Arizona.
"We're talking some real brutal stuff," says Weather.com meteorologist Domenica Davis.
