Heat wave sets records in Deep South

ATLANTA (AP) — Balmy temperatures are setting records in the Deep South as unseasonably warm air blankets the region.

To the east, Anniston, Alabama, also set a new high temperature record at 84 degrees. And Atlanta reached 83 degrees, beating the old record of 82 set in 2012.

In Texas, the weather service says record highs in the law 90s are possible around Austin and San Antonio.

The weather service says temperatures are again predicted in the mid- to upper 80s across the region on Wednesday before a gradual cool-down begins.

High temperatures are supposed to be back in the 60s by the weekend in many areas.
