We started off the morning on a mild note, with temperatures in the 70s, and then under a sunny sky we warmed to right around the average high this afternoon. Below is a look at some of the morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


Overall we do not expect any major changes over the next seven days, but we have made a few minor updates to the forecast from the past couple of days. First off, with the center of high pressure shifting farther east the chance for storms will slightly increase across our northwestern counties. This looks to especially be the case on Friday when a few isolated storms could form across our northwester counties, although most of us will miss out on this rain.

The high pressure system will move back over Texas over the weekend which will return us back to bright sunny conditions, however a cold front will stall across northeastern New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle at the beginning of next week. Along this front showers and thunderstorms will form. The question for us is how strong the wind in the upper part of the atmosphere will be and in what direction will it be blowing, because this will determine whether these storms will move down into the South Plains or stay to the north of us. For now we have just gone with a slight chance for storms on both Monday and Tuesday and will continue to monitor this setup.

I hope you had a great day and were able to stay cool! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Christopher will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
