Hot and breezy with wildfire concerns today, not as hot this weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

More heat for the area with highs in the upper 90s and 100s with a breezy west-southwest wind 12-22mph. A dryline pushes east and this leaves our area under a elevated risk for wildfires. Please use caution with anything that could cause a spark or bring heat to the dry grass, as this could catch and spread a fire in a large area quickly.
Current Wind

TONIGHT: Temperatures drop overnight in the upper 60s and low 70s with a clear sky and calmer wind speeds.

WEDNESDAY: A front will push south in the northern Panhandle where Amarillo will drop to the upper 90s. For us little to no effect with highs again in the 100s with a sunny sky and a light wind.

EXTENDED: The ridge of high pressure will push west into the desert southwest leaving us with a northerly flow aloft. Temperatures will drop a few degrees for this July 4th weekend with more 90s than 100s. Also, we will have a little bit of moisture and some isolated shower and storms can't be ruled out. Amounts of precipitation will be light and not much in coverage expected, so expect to stay dry.

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