Be ready for a hot week across Texas with high heat combined with high humidity will lead to temperatures that feel as hot as 115 degrees.

Abilene, San Antonio, and Brownsville are cities that could set record highs and see dangerous humidity. Texas can also expect severe storms this week, including a couple of reports of six-inch hailstones in the Panhandle.

"Extreme HeatRisk is probable to continue for much of southern Texas through Wednesday. This level of heat risk means that there will likely be little to no overnight relief for those without effective cooling and/or adequate hydration."

In just the past week, a destructive hail of four to six inches in diameter has slammed portions of the Texas Panhandle.

On Sunday, there were numerous five-inch hailstones reported across Texas, including a couple of reports of six-inch hailstones in the Panhandle. While this isn't a state record (6.40 inches that fell in 2021) this is another day in 2024 with large hail reported across the country. There have been 3,479 severe hail reports so far this year which the 4th most to date, and most since 2017.
