AccuWeather Global Weather Center – July 30, 2021 –  Records were broken across the High Plains on Wednesday as above-normal temperatures persisted throughout the region and into the south-central U.S. -- but when will relief from the heat arrive?

Not for a few more days, AccuWeather forecasters say. Instead, the sweltering pattern that's been locked in across the middle of the nation will continue through the weekend for most places.

As temperatures rise, residents should check the AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperature to understand how the temperature actually feels to enhance safety and comfort throughout the weekend.

Afternoon temperatures across cities such as Houston and Lubbock, Texas; Oklahoma City; Wichita, Kansas; and Little Rock, Arkansas; have been about 2-5 degrees above normal, on average, since last weekend.

Dallas hit the 100-degree mark for this first time this year on Sunday then surged into the lower 100s F again on Monday and Tuesday. On average, Dallas typically reaches 100 degrees by the first day of July, and the latest date on which Dallas recorded its first 100-degree reading of the year was on Aug. 23 in 1989.
