Warmer temperatures in Texas and other states in the South and Southwest brought relief after a brutal winter storm ravaged the region last week, leaving millions without power and dozens dead.
- Temperatures in the south will rise to “typical levels or a few degrees above average by early week,” Fox News meteorologist Rick Reichmuth forecasted Saturday
- Roughly half the more than 70 deaths reported so far have occurred in Texas
Temperatures in the South will rise to “typical levels or a few degrees above average by early week,” Fox News meteorologist Rick Reichmuth forecasted Saturday. “A major warm-up is occurring, and temps will be in the 60s by” Sunday. “This will quickly melt the snow and ice and allow the clean-up to begin.”
Storm victims now face a challenging clean-up and expensive repairs as millions are still being advised to boil water for drinking.
President Joe Biden declared a major disaster Saturday for 77 of the 254 counties in Texas. The move will make federal funding available to assist in the cleanup.
