Today is the second day in a row we've set a daily record high and third day in a row it's reached at least 103. Yesterday is climbed to 104 in Lubbock, breaking the previous record for the date of 103 set in 1978. And today it's reached at least 105, breaking the date's record of 103, last reached in 1994. Records go back a little more than a century.
There have also been a few isolated storms over the Rolling Plains. These are moving east and the strongest ones will bring the risk for 60mph wind. Here is FOX34 VIPIR:
Unfortunately, storms over the Rolling Plains past few days have produced lightning strikes that have started fires. There are a few fairly sizable fires ongoing from the Rolling Plains into Central Texas.
TONIGHT: Storms out there will diminish, low near 74. Wind S 5-12mph.
TOMORROW: Hot yet again, high near 101, mostly sunny. Wind S 5-15mph. An isolated storm is possible late.
TUESDAY: Not quite as hot, but still well above average. There's a slim chance for storms late.
LOOKING AHEAD: We don't see a major break in the heat any time soon, though it probably won't be as brutal as what this weekend brought. Later this week the average high will drop to 91; we'll likely stay well above that mark with no promising sign of widespread rain.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast posted here early tomorrow.
