Friday and Saturday reached 100 degrees! The warm temperatures are still here although not quite as hot as the start of the weekend. We won't see much relief in the coming days as a high pressure system hovers over Texas keeping it hot and dry.

Monday will start near 70 and warm into the upper 90s with clear skies all day and a light breeze from the south southwest at 10 to 20 mph. Tuesday is very similar, maybe a little warmer. We'll begin the day in the low 70s with more sun and a high in the upper 90s, low 100s.

Locations off the Cap Rock will likely be slightly warmer than the rest of the South plains, probably above 100 For Monday and Tuesday or at least very near it.

Some slight relief arrives sometime on Wednesday with a weak upper level disturbance dragging a cold front through the South Plains. Models are still being very difficult on agreeing on the timing of the front, but it looks like later in the day Wednesday. Depending on when it gets here, we could be near 100 again on Wednesday or in the mid 90s for a high.

We will also see clouds increase as the front comes through and a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday. Once again, models are still disagreeing on the amount and exact timing of the rain, but right now the best chances are light rain on Wednesday and Thursday. We will have a better idea as this system develops and grows near.

 
 
 


Once that front comes through it should drop us back into the mid 90s and we'll see more sun return to West Texas for next weekend.

Have a great day!
