We are wrapping up a breezy and warm day with temperatures topping out in the upper 70s and the wind about 10-20mph most of the afternoon. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
A cold front will enter the region overnight and clear the area tomorrow. This front will slowly move through shifting the wind to the northeast and then east but overall it won’t be too strong, only up to about 15mph. Afternoon temperatures will stay in the upper 60s and lower 70s under a mostly sunny sky.
An upper-level disturbance will move overhead on Friday which will increase the clouds and could possibly provide us with some sprinkles or light rain Friday evening. The best chance will be across our western counties although everybody on the Caprock has at least a slight chance with coverage being very isolated.
New to the forecast is a slight chance for storms on Saturday. The same disturbance that will move overhead on Friday will slowly exit the area on Saturday but before it leaves will interact with a slightly more favorable environment for storms across the Rolling Plains. Any storms we see should be held off the Caprock with a much better chance farther east across the eastern half of the state up into Oklahoma. This means that there could be some rain or storms during the Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma football game.
Back home temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s both Saturday and Sunday afternoon and we will warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s on Monday. It still looks like a strong cold front will move through some time between Tuesday and Wednesday of next week with possibly another chance for rain. There are still many uncertainties with this setup but it’s a pretty safe bet to expect cooler temperatures for Halloween.
I hope you had a great day! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
