Yesterday marked the last day of the hottest period of the year for us climatologically speaking as our average high was 93° and dropped to 92° today. Now that’s not saying much considering we still warmed into the upper 90s and 100s today but it lets us know that we will start to gradually get cooler pretty soon. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


Tomorrow will be hot again as we warm to around 101°; the record high for the date is 102°. The center of high pressure that has been sitting directly overhead will start to shift to the east on Wednesday giving us a little relief from the heat, with highs in the low to mid 90s to round out the week.

A cold front looks to move down into the Texas Panhandle on Wednesday and then wash out as it moves towards the South Plains. As this happens an upper-level disturbance will move overhead and with the main influence of the high pressure system shifting to the east we might see a few storms across the region. Most of the rain will likely be held across the Texas Panhandle but some could move down into the South Plains. One feature we will be watching is the cold front and how far south it makes it. While this time of the year cold fronts rarely make their way down south this far if it were to move into the South Plains then our rain chances would be slightly better.

I hope you had a great weekend! Join us tonight on the News at Nine for the latest News, Weather, and Sports. Matt will have a full updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
