More record heat expected this week

Posted: Updated:

RECORD HEAT: It reached 96 this afternoon in Lubbock, which broke the previous record for the date of 94. More record heat is expected later this week. 

The wind has shifted out of the NE, which is a front moving across the region. It'll give us a one-day break from the 90s.

TONIGHT: Low near 52, mostly clear. Wind NE 10-20mph.

TOMORROW: High near 79, sunny. The NE wind will be breezy in the morning, gradually diminishing through the afternoon. 79 is the average high this time of year.

HOT DAYS: Thursday should make it back to 90, with a SW breeze. Then we expect the upper 90s Friday and Saturday. There won't be a significant drop in the temperature any time soon. Unfortunately, there also isn't a good sign of rain any time soon.

Here are the record highs for upcoming days:
Thursday - 94 (2013)
Friday - 96 (2012)
Saturday - 97 (2012)
Sunday - 98 (2012)
Monday - 104 (1947)
Tuesday - 99 (2014)

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