Heat will be the weather story in the coming days with temperatures rising into the triple digits. When we aren't past 100 degrees, we will be close, and those temperatures started today.

We will have a similar day again tomorrow, starting in the upper 60s with a high in the mid to upper 90s and sunny skies. Wind will shift throughout the day, starting from the south southwest in the morning. As a weak boundary moves through in the afternoon, it will shift to coming from the northeast by noon. Obviously, it won't slow down our temperatures.

Tuesday will not be much different, starting near 70 and a high in the mid to upper 90s with sunny skies and a light breeze from the south. With the hot temperatures, it may feel a little muggy through Tuesday with dew points remaining near 50 until then.

By Wednesday, the dry line will shift to the east. What that means for us, is the ability for the atmosphere to warm up quicker in the drier conditions. That is when we'll rise to above 100 degrees, possible near 105 degrees for our northeastern areas, and those off the Caprock.

It is still a few days away, and there could be some slight changes in temperatures by Wednesday and Thursday, but don't be surprised if we see temperatures close to 100 again on Thursday.

By Friday, an upper level trough should finally be able to fight off the dominant high pressure system that is bringing us all this dry, hot weather. This will lead to a slight cool down by Friday, likely into the low 90s again. Models are hinting at another quick warm up for Saturday, but there is strong disagreement on temperatures that far out so we will watch it.


Rain chances with this upper level trough on Friday are slight, but worth mentioning at this point. We will also watch the rain potential with that system throughout the week.
