Very hot all week in Lubbock

Very hot all week in Lubbock

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: It's another hot and breezy one, temperature in the 90s and lower 100s, south wind around 20mph. As of mid-afternoon the dew point has dropped to the 40s roughly Lubbock and points west, but there is more humid air to the north and northeast. 

Late this afternoon a few storms may develop in the area, probably somewhere northeast of Lubbock. It's more likely north of Amarillo. While the chance for a storm isn't much, if one develops it could produce some strong wind and hail. There is a severe thunderstorm watch for Canyon and Amarillo and points north up into SW Kansas for this afternoon and evening. North of there is a tornado watch for NW Kansas into E Colorado.

TONIGHT: Mild and mostly clear, low near 68. Wind S 10-20mph.

TOMORROW: Hot and sunny with drier air. High in Lubbock near 101, wind SW 10-18mph.

LONG HOT STRETCH: A strong upper-level ridge will be over the south central United States throughout this week. We can't rule out an isolated storm or two each day, mainly to the east of Lubbock, but it is a slim chance. 

It should climb above 100 each afternoon this week, with the hottest days Thursday and Friday up around 105. 

7-day forecast

Here are the daily record highs for each day in Lubbock:
Tue - 104 (2011)
Wed - 103 (1998)
Thu - 102 (1916)
Fri - 107 (1998)
Sat - 107 (1998)
Sun - 104 (1998)

The average high tomorrow is 87 climbing to 89 by early next week, showing we'll be running around 15 degrees above the average this week. 

Stay cool and have a great rest of your day. Please remember those who died defending this nation so that we have the freedom to do whatever we please.
