Isolated storms possible next few days

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: It's another really hot and sunny day, with the temperature up to at least 100 for much of the area. Lubbock has reached 103 through 4 p.m., which is the hottest mark yet this year. The daily record is 105. It also didn't cool down much, low was only 75 this morning.

The dry line has mixed east to about the edge of the Caprock. To its east there are a few storms, from Snyder to near Childress. These will move east. There is a weak front that has moved across the Panhandle. It's a few degrees less hot up there, but still in the 90s.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy, low near 72. Wind SE/S 10-18mph.

TOMORROW: Partly cloudy and hot, high near 96. Wind S/SE 10-15mph. There is a slight chance for a late-day storm. The overall coverage across the area probably won't be great. There will be some decent humidity in place, along with instability. This means a few storms could produce strong wind gusts along with brief downpours. Unfortunately, we don't expect widespread soaking rain.

LOOKING AHEAD: After several days up above 100 it won't be nearly that hot...but still a few degrees above the seasonal average, in the mid 90s. A few isolated storms are possible Friday and over the weekend. Upper-level high pressure will likely stay centered over the Desert Southwest for about the next week, which means the weather won't change much from day to day. It'll be hot with some afternoon clouds and possibly a late-day storm. The chance for rain at any one location will stay low.

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