THIS MORNING: There are a few isolated showers across Northeast New Mexico moving into the western Texas Panhandle, moving SSE. A much larger complex of storms, some severe, is racing south across Oklahoma. This batch of storms is expanding a little westward, into parts of the eastern Panhandle. It looks like we'll wind up between these two areas of rain, though we could see a few isolated storms in our area...mainly the western and eastern parts of the area this morning.

It is humid this morning, once again with dew points in the 60s...air temp upper 60s to low 70s.

Here is a live stream of the radar:

TODAY: Hot and muggy, high near 90 beneath a partly cloudy sky. After the storms around the region move south this morning, we'll keep just a slight chance for a few thunderstorms this afternoon into this evening. Wind SE 5-15mph.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The air will dry out a little bit, so it may not feel quite so muggy. It'll warm to the upper 80s to low 90s each afternoon, mostly sunny. There might be enough instability for an isolated thunderstorm each day...or maybe a storm moving in from New Mexico at night. But the chance is low.

NEXT WEEK: It'll be more of the same, low 90s each afternoon, mostly sunny. It'll be hot but definitely not as bad as it's been earlier this summer.

 
 
 


TROPICS: The National Hurricane Center gives a 50 percent chance that a low pressure area in the southern Gulf, near the Yucatan, will develop into a tropical system in the next couple of days. The models have been all over the place on where this could move...if it develops. South Texas sure would like this to move NW and bring some rain.

 
 
 


Farther out in the Eastern Atlantic Tropical Storm Erin is moving westward over the open waters.

 
 
 


Have a great day. Rudy will have a full update to the forecast later thi afternoon. Caitlin will have updates this weekend.
