Hotter days ahead, isolated storms possible later today

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Heat Advisory in place for most of the area from noon to 9PM.

Know the signs of heat exhaustion if you have to be out in this heat which includes:
Fast or weak pulse, muscle cramps, dizziness, headache, weakness, and cold, pale, and clammy skin. If continuing to be in the heat this could lead to a heat stroke which could be deadly.

Avoid being outdoors when temperatures soar past 95 degrees or shortly after noon. Find ways to cool your body down with A/C or sitting in the shade. Drink plenty of water to help your body cool, wear light weight and light colored clothing, and always check your back seat if you have children.

High today nearing 105! With a light breeze from the south 10-18mph. With these hot temperatures and a weak dry line, an isolated shower or storm can't be ruled out. Might have a few lucky locations to get some light rain and might have wing gusts pick up.

TONIGHT: Another mild one with mid to upper 70s and low 80s across the area. Any showers or storms quickly diminish around sunset.

FRIDAY: We end this work week with another day with highs near 105.

EXTENDED: The ridge of high pressure will continue across the southwestern US through much of next week. High temperatures will range from 105 to 110 or hotter through this weekend and into the start of next week. Wind speeds do look to increase for a breezy starting Sunday. Very low chances for possible rain, but some isolated storms may move into the area after developing in New Mexico next week. Likely we will have tied or new record highs before the end of this heat wave.

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