THIS AFTERNOON: It's sunny, dry, hot and breezy once again. The dry line has mixed well east of Lubbock, with some storms developing from Big Spring to Sweetwater. Those will move off to the northeast. Across our area the temperature is in the upper 90s to lower 100s, with the hottest readings to the northeast at Paducah and Turkey.
TONIGHT: Mainly clear, low near 68. Wind W/SW 5-15mph.
TOMORROW: Like today, hot and sunny...though the wind won't be as strong. High near 101, wind SW/S 10-15mph.
NEXT FEW DAYS: The pattern will change a little bit. It's still going to be hot, but the high temperature will probably drop back to the mid 90s late this week through next week. The center of the upper-level ridge (area of high pressure) will shift west of our region. This will still bring lots of sun. But with a little more humidity in place, we'll probably have some afternoon clouds and maybe even a few thunderstorms. The chance isn't much at this point. The 7-day has a low chance for storms Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. But really there could be an isolated storm at any point late this week into next week.
Longer-range guidance points to generally hot (above July average highs) and dry weather next couple weeks.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast posted here tomorrow morning.
