Another record likely Saturday, less hot next week

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: It reached 101 in Lubbock today, breaking the previous record for this date of 96, last reached in 2012. Records go back a little more than a century here. Also, our friends at the National Weather Service report this was the fourth-earliest date on record to reach 100 in the city. Earlier dates were April 16, 1925; April 22, 1989 and April 25, 2012.

A few clouds have billowed up and we could see an isolated shower or weak storm next few hours in the area. But if one forms, it'll just kick the wind up and won't bring meaningful rain.

TONIGHT: Clear and mild, low near 64. Wind SW 10-18mph.

TOMORROW: Hot and breezy, high near 100. This would again set a daily record. Wind SW/W 12-22mph. The air will be a bit drier even off of the Caprock, thanks to the westerly breeze. This means it'll be less likely for any high-based showers to form.

LOOKING AHEAD: A weak front will bring a northerly wind shift on Sunday. But the temperature will only drop a few degrees. Monday should reach the upper 90s again before a bigger drop in the temperature.

Tuesday through Friday the temperature will be near the seasonal average each afternoon. We are seeing signs humidity will return to the region, but there still isn't a promising sign of good support for showers or storms. We'll keep an eye on this trend. After a dry April, we certainly could use some rain.

Have a great weekend. Robert will have a full update posted here Saturday afternoon.
