Extreme high heat and dry conditions are serving to create the potential for excessive wildfires across much of Texas, according to officials. On Tuesday, a report citing officials with the Texas A&M Forest Service, noted that even though thunderstorms are predicted this week, lightning from those storms could spark ignitions of fire. Between July 8 and July 10, forty-three new wildfires were recorded across the state. The report also noted the potential is high for wildfires to erupt near the cities of Athens, Tyler, Longview, Palestine and Huntsville.

Also on Tuesday, temperatures in the city of Tyler hovered at 102 °F (38.9 °C) for most of the afternoon. As of Wednesday, the National Weather Service has a heat advisory in place across portions of southern Texas.
