Record heat is expected for the Southeast with temperatures approaching 30 degrees warmer than average
Is it winter or early summer? While much of the county is dealing with frigid temperatures and snow, southern parts of the county will bask in record-warm temperatures for this time of the year. This includes the Southeast, South, parts of Texas and parts of the Mid-Atlantic.
A strong summer-like area of high pressure has set up and will strengthen its grip, placing the region in a favorable pattern for warm temperatures. In fact, many areas across the Southeast, South, parts of Texas, and parts of the Mid-Atlantic will see high temperatures climb into the 70s and 80s from Tuesday through Friday. Even warmer temperatures are expected for inland areas of the Florida Peninsula and south Texas where lower to even mid-90s are expected.
High temperatures this warm are a good 10 to 30 degrees above average depending on the location, which will set some new daily high-temperature records over the coming days. The warmest temperatures are expected Wednesday and Thursday for most of the region.

Temperatures begin to cool across Texas and the South on Friday as a cold front moves into the region. This cold front will sweep into the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic by the weekend bringing temperatures back down to where they should be for February.
