Wind will continue into tonight as well as dry conditions west of the dry line, so there will be an elevated fire risk through tonight. Winds could also continue to kick up dust through midnight tonight when the wind will finally start to weaken slightly into the morning.
A cold front coming through the area tonight will mean much cooler temperatures in the low 20s for tomorrow morning. There is a slight chance for some light precipitation for our extreme far northeastern counties but most of the South Plains will stay dry at the surface. Winds will continue to weaken into the afternoon but they will still be bringing in the cold air so we'll only see a high in the upper 40s, which is about 20 degrees below average.
A high pressure will stick around through the start of the work week, meaning the morning lows in the low 20s and afternoon highs in the upper 40s will last through Monday with mostly sunny skies and relatively light winds compared to the very strong winds we've had.
Tuesday will be slightly warmer, but still chilly with a high in the mid to upper 50s and mostly sunny skies. We finally reach near average on Wednesday with an expected high near 70, but it's looking like it will be another windy day with the arrival of another system. This system so far is dry, so don't expect any rain thus far.
Above average temperatures return for the end of the week due to plenty of sunshine and a southwest wind heating us back up into the mid to upper 70s for Thursday and Friday.
Henry, Nick and I will be on tonight for the News at Nine!
Have a great weekend!
