It was another sunny and hot day across the South Plains but if it makes you feel any better we did avoid warming into the triple digits today.

 
 
 


 
 
 


There is not much change in the forecast as a strong high pressure system looks to stay overhead for most of the week keeping us under a clear sky with above average temperatures. Morning temperatures will continue to be in the upper 60s and lower 70s while afternoon temperatures will be right around 100° each day.

Tropical Storm Debby continues to remain basically stationary in the Gulf of Mexico about 180 miles southwest of Tallahassee, Florida. Yesterday a few forecast models had the storm coming towards the Texas coast but today those outlying models have come back into better agreement with a more north/northeast path as is shown by the forecast from the National Hurricane Center below.

 
 
 


There are some signs that the high pressure will weaken and perhaps even break up by next weekend giving us a little relief from the heat but right now we still don’t see any big changes in the overall weather pattern.

 
 
 


I hope you had a great weekend and I will see you tonight on the News at Nine. Chase will be filling in for Matt tomorrow morning on Ag Day Lubbock and Good Day Lubbock.
