THIS MORNING: We've got a partly cloudy sky. The clouds have kept it mild, generally 70s across the South Plains.
TODAY: It's going to get hot and humid again today, high near 93. We've got dew points in the 60s, showing a good amount of humidity. The clouds show the combination of both Gulf and Pacific Moisture. We've got a chance for some storms this afternoon into the evening. While not all of us will see the rain, all this moisture means downpours that could drop a quick 1/2" of rain. A strong storm is possible, but the overall severe risk isn't high.
NEXT FEW DAYS: The moisture will stay in place, so we'll keep a slight chance for thunderstorms through at least Wednesday. We don't have a well-defined mechanism to lead to widespread storms...but we also don't have a big ridge squashing the storm chance. It'll stay pretty close to 90 each afternoon. Average high next few days is 91.
The weekend is looking a little hotter, though latest trend in the guidance has been to back off on it warming up. The European model has actually been interesting, suggesting more rain late this week into the weekend.
TEXAS TECH FORECAST: Another round of some severe storms possible in Omaha today. Weather will be quieter tomorrow in Omaha. First pitch for Texas Tech and Ole Miss in the low 90s, high near 94. The wind will be gusty from the south 15-25mph.
Have a great day. I'll have another check of the forecast here later this afternoon.
