THIS AFTERNOON: It's warmed into the 90s across much of the area, hotter to the southwest. Showers and clouds this morning have kept it less hot the north and east of Lubbock. There were a few showers late last night into this morning, but most of it was pretty light.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear, low near 66. Wind SE/E 5-10mph. Low chance for an isolated shower.
TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and hot, high near 96. Wind S/SE 8-15mph. Low chance for a storm late.
WEEKEND: Sunny and hot, upper 90s both days. Pretty much the trend over the next week, there still could be an isolated storm. But the chance at any one location is low, don't expect widespread rain. One potential boost to the rain chance is a front that may drop into the area Sunday into Monday. But I'm not too optimistic on that just yet.
NEXT WEEK: Sunny and hot. A tropical system now east of Nicaragua will likely become a tropical storm tonight or tomorrow. The forecast from the National Hurricane Center shows it could move toward Texas or Louisiana middle of next week. It's too far out for any specifics...possibilities are pretty far west to east.
But what is a bit more certain is high pressure will stay somewhere across our region. This means even if a storm does make to the Texas coast, the upper ridge would deflect the storm away and we would be on the western side of it, where there is sunny and hot weather. So still no good sign of rain here any time soon.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update here early tomorrow.
