Highs in the low 80s today across West Texas and the warm weather doesn't stop there. Our low overnight tonight is only going to be 50, some clouds and southwest winds will keep us extremely mild tomorrow morning. The afternoon won't be quite as warm as today, but we'll still get into the mid 70s with mostly sunny skies.
Tomorrow will be another windy day with west northwest winds at 20 to 30 mph. Don't be surprised if there is blowing dust after noon. We'll finally get a little bit of a break on Tuesday from the wind, but that comes with cooler temperatures.
A cold front passes through late tomorrow, early Tuesday morning, bringing us some clouds overnight and dropping our morning temperature to the low 30s. Clouds clear quickly by morning so we'll have mostly sunny skies Tuesday, but still only a high in the mid 50s.
By Wednesday, south winds and and sunny skies will allow our temperatures to rebound up to near 60 again and 70 by Thursday. We'll be near 70 again on Friday, but clouds will start to build by Friday with the arrival of another system from the northwest.Chance for rain and thunderstorms next weekend
This event it still very far away, but models are showing a chance for rain starting next Saturday. Right now we are expecting overnight temperatures in the mid 40s and afternoon highs in the low to mid 60s for Saturday and Sunday. Even since yesterday, the timing of this event has changed and will likely change more between now and then. We will keep an eye on the chance for rain and potential for storms and exactly when we can expect them towards mid week next week.Severe Weather Preparedness Week
