America's Freakiest Winter Heat Waves | The Weather Channel
- Living in central Texas can be a challenge in many ways. Austin's traffic and the heat!
The intensity of the Feb. 20-23, 1996 heat wave remains unparalleled in most of Texas. In Austin, Feb. 21 was the warmest winter day in history â€“ and at the cityâ€™s Bergstrom International Airport, the Feb. 21 high of 101Âº remains the only triple digit reading ever recorded on any date between Jan. 1 and May 4. Of Austinâ€™s four warmest February days in history, three were in this single heat wave.
