Hot and dry pattern ahead

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: It's a mostly sunny day, warm across the region. We had some rain over the southern South Plains early this morning. Since then storms have moved farther south, down along I-10. Across our area it's been mostly sunny, though there has been some haze.

This smoke analysis shows much of the Plains has some haze or smoke from fires out west. And this even comes down into our area. Green shows some haze or smoke, the worst in red.

TONIGHT: Mostly clear, low 67. Wind E/SE 5-12mph.

TOMORROW: Mostly sunny, high 92. Wind S/SE 5-15mph. There could again be some haze.

HOT PATTERN: High pressure will expand across our region leading to hotter days. At this point Thursday and Friday should be hottest, around 98. But the ridge isn't in a rush to get out of here. Maybe by late week or this weekend it could move far enough east for some rain here...but nothing promising at this point.

Hot and dry should be the general pattern into early next week.

7-day forecast

Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
