Hotter next few days on South Plains; Hurricane Laura makes landfall tonight

Posted: Updated:

It's another hot and sunny day on the South Plains, dry yet again. It'll stay clear tonight, low in the mid 60s.

TOMORROW: Slightly hotter, high near 97. Wind S/SE 5-12mph. Storms will probably stay east, roughly Wichita Falls to Abilene and points east, tied to moisture from Hurricane Laura. We can't rule out an isolated storm here.

NEXT FEW DAYS: It'll be very hot Friday, around 103 with maybe a few more clouds. Over the weekend we may see a few isolated storms. By next week there is at least a little support for thunderstorms late each day. It also may trend less hot by middle of next week.

LATEST ON LAURA: The 4p National Hurricane Center advisory has 145mph sustained wind on Hurricane Laura, moving NW at 15mph. This is a category four hurricane. It's about 150 miles south of Lake Charles, Louisiana.

It's projected to move inland as a major hurricane late tonight/early morning along the Texas-Louisiana border. It will move quickly north. Storm surge is the major concern.

Join us for an updated look at Laura tonight on FOX34 News at Nine. Robert will have a complete update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
