ANOTHER HOT DAY: Upper-level high pressure is in place again today, which means a mainly sunny, hot day is ahead. But it won't be quite as hot as yesterday, with the ridge lifting off to the east. High near 94 in Lubbock, few clouds late today, wind S/SE 10-18mph. Here is the area forecast:

 
 
 


RAIN SETUP: Behind the ridge an upper-level disturbance will move this way from northern Mexico. If nothing else it'll cool things off some with more clouds. But models have been pretty consistent on developing scattered showers and weak thunderstorms tomorrow into Saturday. We don't expect severe weather. The good news is moisture levels through the atmosphere will be well above average, meaning some healthy rain totals are possible. That said, not all of us will see rain.

It'll be cooler tomorrow and Saturday, both afternoons in the 80s. It should warm back to the 90s with more sun by Father's Day.

NEXT WEEK: Models have been showing the ridge building back. But that doesn't mean the hope for rain is gone, the latest trend has been for thunderstorms to develop in the higher terrain of New Mexico and Colorado with the storms moving east and getting here by night. There isn't a strong sign of us actually seeing rain just yet, but this would be welcome.

 
 
 


Caitlin will have a full update to the forecast later today, enjoy the day.
