What a difference a few days makes! We ended out last week with morning lows in the 50s/60s and afternoon highs in the 70s/80s and now this week has started off reminding us that it is still July after all. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
Once again a few storms have formed across eastern New Mexico and the western South Plains this afternoon. These storms are not moving much at all so the locations under the storms could see the rainfall totals add up quickly. Click here
for a look at the 24 hour rainfall totals from the West Texas Mesonet Sites. We do not expect any of these storms to get anywhere close to severe but any time there is lightning nearby you need to stay indoors. You can keep an eye on these storms with our live streaming radar below.
Similar conditions are expected again tomorrow with morning lows in the low to mid 70s and afternoon highs in the upper 90s and 100s. We again could see a few storms form around the state line but most of us will miss out on the rain. By Wednesday our rain chances decrease to almost zero but an outside chance for an isolated shower will stay in our forecast the rest of the week due to the amount of moisture in place. That moisture will also keep our morning lows mild and make it feel muggy outside.
We do not expect any major changes over the next seven days with temperatures peaking at the end of the week with most of us warming into the triple digits. There are some signs that the high pressure system will lift to the north next week allowing our temperatures to cool some and increasing our rain chances a bit. There is still plenty of uncertainty with the scenario next week though and until then we will just have to deal with more of the same sunny, hot and dry conditions.
I hope you had a great weekend and great start to this week! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Caitlin will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
