While it was another hot one today at least we didn’t come close to setting the daily record high which is also the all-time record high for Lubbock of 114° set back in 1994.
The strong high pressure system that has been overhead or just to the north of us for the entire week will start to weaken and eventually split into two distinctive separate high pressure systems. One of these will move to the southeastern United States with the other moving over the desert southwest. While these two systems will still control the overall large scale weather patterns across the United States which will have an effect on us, since they won’t be directly overhead of us our temperatures will return closer to average by the weekend and next week with afternoon temperatures in the mid to upper 90s.
We will also monitor a disturbance that will move out of the Gulf of Mexico into South Texas by the end of the week, but this does not look like it will have any effect on our weather.
The remnants of what was Tropical Storm Debby is now exiting the east coast of Florida and moving out into the Atlantic. The current forecast from the National Hurricane Center has the storm turning back into a Tropical Storm and taking more of a north/northeast path between the east coast and Bermuda. The official National Hurricane Center forecast is below.
I hope you have been able to stay cool this week. Hang in there, some relief is in sight! I will have a complete wrap of the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have the next updated forecast first thing tomorrow morning.
