I believe a certain four letter word perfectly describes how hot it is across Texas this afternoon. Vernon is at 112 degrees with much of the state at or above the century mark. The only folks who are receiving some relief are those right on the coast where the sea breeze has pushed onshore. Even there though, temperatures are hovering around 90 degrees.

We’ll have a summary of locations that broke record highs a bit later this evening, for now I’ll leave you with additional graphics that show temperatures on a more local level.
