HOT PATTERN: The upper-level ridge of high pressure that's been south of our area is going to build north and west. This means it'll get hotter next few days.

Lubbock's high was 96 yesterday, we should top out around 100 this afternoon. Wind SW/S 10-20mph, sunset 9:01 p.m. There could be an isolated shower somewhere in the area, but not much more than gusty wind would be produced. The chance for meaningful rainfall is low this week.

The ridge should be strongest across our area tomorrow and Thursday, both days up around 102. While it'll be around 10 degrees above the average this is nothing compared to record territory. Today's record high is 110, tomorrow's 112, Thursday holds the mark for the all-time Lubbock record at 114, set in 1994. Yeah, I'm fine with those records holding for many years to come.

The ridge is going to build farther northwest, into the Pacific Northwest by the weekend. At the same time a storm system over the Midwest this weekend may send a weak front down this way. It'll probably knock the temp down some, but the chance for rain is low at this point.

 
 
 


Have a great day! Rudy will have a full update to the forecast later today.
