Triple Digits: 23 Days and Counting



    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain
    There is no relief in sight from triple-digit temps.

    It was another triple-digit day in Dallas-Fort Worth -- the 23rd straight day for the temperature to rise to 100 degrees or higher.

    The temperature reached 100 at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport at 2 p.m. Sunday, and no relief was in sight.

    The National Weather Service forecast called for more triple-digit readings all week long in the Dallas area, including a predicted high of 104 on Monday.

    The record is 42 days, set in the oppressive summer of 1980.

    North Texas is under a heat advisory until 9 p.m. Monday, with the heat index forecast to be between 105 and 110.
