THIS AFTERNOON: It's a hot day with the temperature in the upper 90s across much of the area with a few 100-degree readings at mid-afternoon. There are also some thunderstorms developing in Eastern New Mexico. Here is current FOX34 VIPIR:
THIS EVENING: We expect some of the storms in New Mexico to move east. The better chance for storms is north and west of Lubbock, though the city could get a storm. There is a little bit better support for strong storms than the past few days. It won't be widespread severe weather, but a few storms could produce strong wind. We'll keep a low chance for a storm through early morning. Low near 73.
TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and hot. A few storms may pop up over the western South Plains. High near 100, wind S 10-20mph.
LOOKING AHEAD: High pressure aloft will edge eastward to be centered right on top of West Texas. This means the occasional storms we've had over the past few weeks will probably fade away. And it's going to get hotter, with triple-digit temperature readings expected rest of the week.
It looks less hot heading into next week, possibly with a few more showers/storms in the area.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a complete forecast update posted here early tomorrow.
