Given the current forecast most of these records should be tied or broken today and in the coming days.
IAH will probably end with a record high minimum of 82 today. HOU...83 tonight would be a new record. GLS...84 tonight should tie it.
And of note that 83 at Hobby would tie the all time record high minimum for Hobby airport for the month of July (current monthly record stands at 83 July 12th, 2019) though 83 degrees is also the warmest record high minimum in June - so yeah it is hot.
