MORE HEAT: The big ridge of high pressure is spread across much of the southern United States and just about centered across West Texas. This means another hot and sunny day, Lubbock's high near 104 today, wind S/SE 6-14mph. Like yesterday you can tack on a few more degrees for locations east of Lubbock, off of the Caprock.


Lubbock's high was 104 yesterday. Today's record high is 114, which is the all-time high in Lubbock for any day, set in 1994. Here are some observed highs yesterday from the Texas Tech Mesonet:

Aspermont 110
Northfield 109
Guthrie 108
Jayton 108
Lake Alan Henry 108
Gail 107
Paducah 107
Post 107
Quitaque 107
Roaring Springs 107
Turkey 107

NEXT FEW DAYS: With the ridge of high pressure slowly weakening it'll be a few degrees less hot next few afternoons, about 101 tomorrow, 100 Friday.

WEEKEND: Plenty of sunshine with each morning in the 70s, afternoon high in the mid to upper 90s. There may be a few more clouds than what we're seeing today.

NEXT WEEK: The GFS and European models are in disagreement on just where the high pressure ridge is centered, or possibly where the two ridges will be. An upper low is forecast to move across South Texas, bringing those residents some rain and cooler weather. If that low were to move closer to West Texas it would mean cooler weather here. It's too far out to consider any rain potential.


DEBBY: Debby is down to a tropical depression. It is forecast to move east into the open waters of the Atlantic. It could strengthen back up to a tropical storm but is not a threat to land as it moves east.


Enjoy the day! Rudy will have a full update later today.
