Hot and dry through the weekend, rain chances into next week

LUBBOCK, Texas -

TODAY: Another hot and dry afternoon with highs in the lower to mid 90s. There will be some clouds through the day with lots of sunshine.

TONIGHT: Low near 67 with a mostly clear sky.

Were ending this work week and through the weekend hot and dry with the ridge of high pressure staying in our region. The hottest day on Saturday with mid 90s for most of the area and possible 100s for the Rolling Plains.

NEXT WEEK: Changes on the way for our area as the ridge of high pressure pushes into the southeast U.S. As this happens more moisture is expected to push in our area ahead of some upper level systems. This will help lifting the moisture giving us rain chances back in our area. It looks to start into New Mexico and across our western counties, then shifts east bring better coverage in our area.

Hurricane Dorian has upgraded back to a major hurricane overnight and still bringing heavy rain, high winds in excess of 100mph, and high storm surge across the east coast. Florida is now in the clear but the Carolinas are being impacted with possible land fall overnight in North Carolina.

Have a great Thursday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
