This evening: Passing clouds will slide over the southern plains this evening as partly cloudy skies enter the forecast for the night. The evening low will drop to 78°.
Tomorrow: Partly cloudy skies will last into our day tomorrow with the possibility of a few isolated showers. The afternoon high will reach a maximum near 104°.
It’s shaping up to be our hottest day so far this year, and the heat will continue to set in until the sun goes down. Fortunately, some moisture will start to seep in by tomorrow and the heat advisory and excessive heat warning for West Texas will expire at 9 p.m.
A few high altitude showers moved into our northern counties about an hour ago, but more rain is on the way by tomorrow! The good news about this heat wave is that it has made our atmosphere unstable enough to produce a few quick showers by tomorrow!
Tomorrow’s highs are still expected to top 100 degrees but a chance of splash showers and dashes also present themselves. Our NAM model shows the possibility of afternoon rain which will likely be light, but widespread. It’s not expected to be measurable, but we’ll take every chance of rain we can!
We start the first half of the week with blistering temperatures as the heat caused the hottest day so far today. The heat will persist tomorrow but a cool front will overturn us by about ten degrees as Thursday approaches. A small chance of rain enters the forecast by tomorrow afternoon and could bring some quick summer showers to most of the region. The upper 90s remain until the end of the week.
Have a good afternoon!
