THIS AFTERNOON: It's another hot day, with mid 90s around Lubbock and most locations on the Caprock. It's a bit hotter over the Rolling Plains, around 100. There also have been some slow-moving storms over Eastern New Mexico. Some of these diminish not long after forming. For the ones that hold together, they might crawl eastward into the western South Plains by this evening. But coverage will stay low. There are also a few storms trying to pop up in the SE Panhandle.
Here is current FOX34 VIPIR:
TONIGHT: Warm and mostly clear, low near 70. Wind SE 5-10mph.
INDEPENDENCE DAY: High near 98, mostly sunny. Wind E/SE 5-15mph. There is a slim chance for a late-day storm.
SUNDAY: A few more clouds, high near 94. Wind SE 10-15mph. There's a slight chance for storms late afternoon into Sunday night. Some of these storms could become strong, with gusty wind.
NEXT WEEK: The center of upper-level high pressure will likely build back closer into our region, pushing the high back up near 100. Sunny and hot weather is expected through the week.
Have a great rest of your day and a very happy Fourth of July. Robert will have an update to the forecast here Saturday afternoon.
