Over the past few days, the southern plains have received rain and a much needed rain accumulation. Morton had almost an inch of buildup for our wettest spot in West Texas. The chance of rain has passed and an anticyclonic system sets in this morning, which will lead to a hot and dry weekend.
We start our Friday fun day with temperatures ranging from the lower 60s to the lower 70s. A good start to the day won’t let us down as we enter the low to mid 90s in the afternoon. Generally sunny skies begin our last day of the work week, but the sun will take over throughout the afternoon as the clouds clear.
Today’s highs will reach lows into the mid 90s, which is above average, and clouds will continue to move through the rest of the morning. A few passing clouds may gather throughout the afternoon, but that won’t stop the heat from seeping in. Dry air is being pushed into the area due to a high pressure system and this will keep us sunny through the end of the week.
Today we start with mostly sunny skies and temperatures will rise into the mid 90s which is above average for the time of year. Moisture will continue to roll out of the southern plains bringing only a few showers to Lea County this afternoon. Temperatures will climb into the mid 90s for the rest of the week and the sun will take over in time for the weekend!
Have a good afternoon!
