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.
