A stray shower possible north, otherwise hot and dry

A stray shower possible north, otherwise hot and dry

Chances look a little better Sunday and Monday evenings for a stray shower or thunderstorm to meander our way from areas north, but we'll likely remain dry across Lubbock and areas south into Monday. Expect a low temperature tonight of 69 degrees with winds picking up from the south from 10-20mph.

Breezy conditions continue into Tuesday, and while we may not reach 100 Monday, we definitely will as we continue toward the weekend. I don't think we'll quite break the record Monday of 103º, but it's certainly possible other days this coming week. In fact, most days will break 100º.

The week after looks like we'll remain warmer than average too. It doesn't mean we'll necessarily be in the 100s, but it will be hot. Average high temperatures are about 87º this time of year. Expect anomalously high temperatures to persist, as well as slightly drier conditions.

The reason for all of this, a stubborn area of high pressure will be developing out of northern Mexico, and this will encroach West Texas, keeping rain at a minimum, and trapping a large warm and dry bubble of air over the area. Until this area of high pressure breaks down, it looks like it will be like this potentially through the first week of June.

Catch the latest update to the forecast tonight on the News at 9. Bobby will be back in the morning and Matt in the evening. Stay cool and hydrated and take care of your animals!

    Abnormally hot and dry for a while. You may get lucky with a stray shower tonight or tomorrow, but likely well toward the north of Lubbock.
