AUSTIN ( – ERCOT has issued another weather watch for July 16-18, warning that due to forecasted higher temperatures, there will be higher electrical demand and operating reserves could be lower.

ERCOT says grid conditions are expected to be normal during those dates, but they will monitor conditions closely.

A new unofficial peak demand record has already been set for this month. ERCOT's supply and demand dashboard shows another record could be set next week.
