The dog days of summer won’t bite like in 2011

MARBLE FALLS —  Although the dog days of summer are here, they will have a lot less bite than last year’s unprecedented heat wave, forecasters say.

In spite of the record high temperatures Central Texas experienced June 26 — 106 degrees in Marble Falls and 109 in Austin — meteorologists say this summer will only see 20-25 days of heat in the triple digits, compared to summer 2011 with 90 days of continuous temperatures at or above the century mark.
