We are watching a few showers and thunderstorms that have formed across the Texas Panhandle as of this writing. These storms will be moving to the south and might make their way into our northern counties before they completely dissipate, but as they get closer to us and interact with the high pressure system overhead they will start to weaken and eventually fade. You can watch this whole process and see if we do end up getting any rain with our live streaming radar below.
Other than the slight chance for rain this evening, with emphasis on the word “slight”, today turned out a lot like yesterday. Most of us started off in the low to mid 70s and warmed into the mid to upper 90s this afternoon. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


We can expect similar conditions for the rest of the week with temperatures a few degrees warmer tomorrow through Saturday. Models are still consistent on bringing a low pressure system out of the Gulf of Mexico and moving it from east to west across South Texas at the beginning of next week. It still looks like this will be to far to the south of us to have any decent chance at rain but it should help weaken the grip of the high pressure system overhead leading to slightly cooler temperatures.

What was Tropical Storm Chantal is now just a Tropical Depression sitting right off the coasts of Haiti and Jamaica. This storm will likely track north towards the Florida coast producing rain and some minor wind, but nothing too serious. For more information you can go to the National Hurricane Center website.

Happy Wednesday! We are half way through the week now and still have several more days of this blazing heat to deal with but at least there is some relief in sight! Join us tonight on the News at Nine for the latest News, Weather and Sports. Matt will have a full updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
