CLEAR START: You can tell where a ridge of high pressure aloft is, with a clear sky stretching from West Texas to Arizona and down to northern Mexico. It's mild with some humidity in the air, temp in the 60s and low 70s, dew point near 60.
TODAY: It'll stay sunny, perhaps a few clouds this afternoon. It'll top out near 97 in Lubbock, wind S-SE 5-15mph. It looks like the next few days will be similar, with 100-degree highs Wednesday and Thursday. The wind will get stronger out of the south tomorrow and Wednesday. The air will get a little drier, but still some moisture in the air through this week.
LATER THIS WEEK: There continue to be major differences between the GFS and European models, which lower confidence in the outlook. It does look less hot, but the big difference is whether a disturbance passing to our north brings any rain. The European has been much more aggressive on raid, though this morning's data shows a lot of it staying to our north in the Panhandle. The GFS has been drier past few days. We'll watch this, could be some rain somewhere in the region later this week, with the weekend not quite so hot.
TEXAS TECH FORECAST: In typical June fashion across southern Florida, there were small downpours scattered around. Unfortunately enough of these moved near Coral Gables to lead to two weather delays last night for Texas Tech Baseball, with the third ongoing now. The Miami-Tech game will resume in the top of the eighth, scheduled for 1Central/2Eastern this afternoon. There will be more scattered showers around the area this afternoon. But these are small enough let's hope they'll miss the game and Tech can get the final five outs needed.
Have a great day. Rudy will update this forecast later this afternoon.
