Low storm chance next few days

Low storm chance next few days

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: It's another hot one with a sunny sky and the temperature up near 100. A few showers and storms have developed way out west near Ruidoso down to Carlsbad, but around the Lubbock area it's just sunny and hot.

The big dome of high pressure across the South Central U.S. is keeping it sunny here. Farther to the west, we can see humidity increasing across Mexico. That's a sign of some humidity that will move up this way as the high pressure ridge moves east in the coming days. 

TONIGHT: Like the past two nights, it'll stay mild again tonight. Yesterday morning's low was 78, this morning's low 77. We expect a low in the mid 70s. Wind S 10-15mph.

FRIDAY: High near 97, with a few clouds going up through the afternoon. Breezy, wind S 12-22mph. There is a slight chance for storms west of Lubbock late afternoon, then a slight chance for storms across the area including Lubbock later at night.

WEEKEND: It'll still be hot, but with a little bit more humidity and potential for some storms, it won't be as hot as the past couple days. The storm potential is slightly better Saturday. Still, it looks like many locations in our area will miss the rain this weekend.

NEXT WEEK: Longer-range guidance shows the high pressure ridge re-establishing itself a little farther west, meaning it'll likely stay hot and dry here. 

7-day forecast

Have a good evening. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
