    The news/ The temperatures / The traffic

    News of the tragedy spread quickly around the town.
    Temperatures hit 40 degrees centigrade yesterday.
    Traffic was heavy and cars were closing up behind each other.

    Can we add the article 'The' to these three subject nouns without changing the meaning of the sentences?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, except for "temperatures" but you could use "the" with "temperature". But I prefer all without "the".
