    Texas heat forecast: Triple-digit temps, electrical grid conditions normal

    August 8, 2022 - Elizabeth Souder, The Dallas Morning News


      The Texas summer of 2022 will go down as a scorcher. Triple-digits continue as new Texans move here each day, and the need for air conditioning is stretching the state’s electricity generation resources.

      Here’s the forecast for Monday:

      High temperature in North Texas: 100 in Dallas; 101 Fort Worth

      Precipitation: Scattered showers possible this afternoon north of Interstate 20

      Electrical grid conditions: NORMAL

      Committed power generation capacity: 80,000 MW

      (This is the capacity that power plant owners have committed to operating today. More capacity may be available in an emergency.)

      Electricity demand: 76,700 MW at 5 p.m.

      (This is how much power generation Texans are expected to demand at the peak hour of the day.)

      Natural gas price: $7.75 per million British thermal units, -3.92%

      (NYMEX futures prices. Natural gas is an important fuel for Texas electricity generation, and electricity companies look to natural gas markets as they set their prices for regular customers.)
