After seeing temperatures right around the average values yesterday, we were quite a bit warmer today. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


A quiet, hot and dry weather pattern will persist throughout the rest of the week as high pressure sits overhead. The mornings will be pleasant, starting off in the upper 60s and lower 70s while the afternoons will be hot, topping out in the upper 90s and 100s. The wind will remain fairly light and there will be hardly a cloud in the sky the rest of the week. The center of this high pressure system will shift off to the east by the end of the week and weekend. This means temperatures will be a few degrees less hot plus this might open us up for a slight chance for rain. With high pressure shifting to the east that means the winds in the upper part of the atmosphere will blow from the south overhead since wind moves in a clockwise manner around high pressure systems. Models have shown a disturbance moving up from Mexico across West Texas during this time period. If we have enough moisture in place this disturbance could spark off a few showers and thunderstorms although it currently looks like the best chances will be held across the Permian Basin and New Mexico. We will continue to keep you updated on this setup as we get closer.

I hope you had a great weekend and a good start to the workweek! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have a full updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
