This week will have a completely different feel compared to last week. Our temperatures will continue to rise and we will also begin to dry up even more. Your Sunday morning low will be in the mid to upper 60s and a south wind near 10 to 20 mph with mostly sunny skies will help the South Plains warm into the low to mid 90s.
That is just the start of the hot weather. A high pressure system to the southwest of here will continue to build into our region. This means drier weather, sunny skies and even warmer temperatures. mornings will sit in the mid to upper 60s for the foreseeable future, but afternoons will rise into the upper 90s.
Despite the high pressure keeping us sunny, we still have moisture in the atmosphere, which is why it may feel slightly muggy for the next few days while dew points hover in the 50s. By Tuesday and especially Wednesday, dew points will dip. That means we will dry up, allowing our afternoons to heat up faster.
That being said, models are hitting at triple digit temperatures by Wednesday and Thursday, if we dry up even more. Friday brings a cold front that should cool us off into the 80s again with a slight chance for rain along with that front.
As of now just count on that high pressure system fighting off the surrounding systems and keeping the South Plains hot and sunny.
