Few storms today, hot days continue

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

It was just a record breaking day for Lubbock yesterday with the new all time record warmest low at 86 degrees & the new daily record high of 111 degrees. The record high today is 105° set back in 2001, we will be close to that record nearing 103. Still hot and you need to keep hydrated and find ways to stay cool. We have had some isolated showers this morning with the current radar below:

Into the afternoon and evening hours another chance for rain with storms expected. These may produce some high gusts of wind and maybe some lower severe hail. Likely to develop in eastern New Mexico and push north-northeast across our west and northwestern counties. Not a great shot for rain, but it it the best chances in our area through the forecast.

EXTENDED: The ridge of high pressure continues to stick around and weakening. This will help our temperatures some with more upper 90s and low 100s through the weekend and into next week. Low temperatures a little better as well with lower to mid 70s. All the showers and storms moves around the ridge of high that's placed over our area. If we continue into the 100s through Friday that will be the third longest stretch of 100+ degree days on record.

Have a great Wednesday! Matt has the latest updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
