SLIGHTLY HOTTER: The high pressure ridge that is centered over the Rockies will expand this way in the coming days, leading to slightly hotter afternoons. The rain we picked up last week should keep the temperature from taking off into the 100s area-wide...but, of course, the offset is it'll be muggy. The dew point is in the mid 60s to low 70s this morning, which is pretty humid for our area.

Today's high in Lubbock near 96, wind S/SE 5-15mph. An isolated shower or storm is possible, but mainly it'll be just a few clouds mixing with lots of sunshine.


NEXT FEW DAYS: Tomorrow will be about as hot. The chance for storms ticks up ever so slightly, though most of us should stay dry. Models do show a few upper-level disturbances sliding across the region from NW to SE late this week into the first part of the weekend. This could lead to a few storms, we'll keep a slight chance for thunderstorms through Saturday.

The rain chance doesn't look great any one day, but hopefully we can pick up a little rain. The rain potential looks better in the northern Panhandle and especially northern Oklahoma this week.


Have a great day. Thanks to Caitlin for filling in while I was on vacation. Rudy will have a complete update to the forecast later today.
