It was another hot day with temperatures about 5-10 degrees above both the average low and average high. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
The center of high pressure is sitting right overhead meaning clear and mild mornings turning to sunny and hot afternoons. This high will shift off to the east by the end of the week so temperatures shouldn’t be as hot during that time, upper 80s and lower 90s in the afternoon. As the high moves off to the east an upper-level disturbance will also move up from northern Mexico across West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. This disturbance could ignite a few showers and thunderstorms across the South Plains although there are still a few questions about this setup. Models differ a bit on when the high will shift to the east and when the disturbance will track across the area plus when and how much moisture will return. All these ingredients will need to come together almost perfectly for us to see rain so for now we will hold off on any chances for rain as we continue to monitor the setup as we get closer. The center of high pressure will move back overhead next week returning us to sunny and hot conditions.
Join us tonight on the News at Nine for the latest News, Weather and Sports. I’m leaving for Germany tomorrow for my Oma and Opa’s 60th Wedding Anniversary. My family there tells me that they have been inundated with rain lately, so hopefully I can bring some of that back with me. A big thanks to Caitlin and Matt who will be filling in for me while I am gone.
