Sunny and hot all week; Dorian slowly moving up Eastern Seaboard

Posted:

THIS AFTERNOON: It's another sunny and hot day, low to mid 90s on the Caprock with upper 90s farther east, over the Rolling Plains. High pressure remains over the western half of the country, which is why it'll stay hot next several days.

TONIGHT: Low near 67, clear, light S/SE wind.

TOMORROW: Sunny, high near 93. Wind SE/E 5-12mph.

LOOKING AHEAD: Not much change from day to day, lots of sun each day. Saturday will probably be about the same as this past Saturday, which reached a high of 95. At least the Tech game is in the evening, but that afternoon will be hot. We are seeing some signs of less hot and possibly wetter weather next week, but nothing promising this far out.

TROPICS: Dorian is finally moving slightly faster than the past few days, which isn't saying much. The late afternoon advisory shows it at 6mph. It's forecast to be a category 2 next couple days. But also the distance hurricane-force wind stretches from the center is greater, posing the storm surge risk along the East Coast of Florida, along with strong wind. Click here - for more info.

There is also tropical storm Fernand in the Gulf. It's no threat to Texas, will continue westward into Mexico.

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