We have had more clouds than expected today which has helped to sort of stabilize the atmosphere and thus lessen our chances for storms. That being said, we could still see a few storms form this evening with the best chances being over the Texas Panhandle and our northern counties. If storms are able to form, some could become severe with the main concerns being large hail and strong wind gusts. You can keep an eye on all the potential storm activity with our live streaming radar below.
Starting tomorrow the weather gets boring as the center of high pressure moves closer to us. This will help clear up the sky and warm our temperatures into the triple digits each afternoon. Right now it looks like the hottest day will be Wednesday, with a high of 102°, but with each day the rest of the week warming into the 100s they will all be plenty hot. In case you are wondering, these temperatures will not be close to any records with the record high on Wednesday being 112°, and all the other days’ right around that. The center of high pressure will shift off to the west of us by the end of the week. This will give a little bit of relief in the temperature department with us warming into the mid to upper 90s over the weekend instead of the 100s.

I’m now back from my vacation in Germany. It was great to see a lot of family and friends that I haven’t seen in a long time but now I am happy to be back. A big thanks to Matt and Caitlin for covering my shifts and working extra while I was out. I will have an update on the potential storms tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
