Today was almost an exact replica of yesterday, with similar temperatures and rain in the same locations. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


We again saw a few light showers early this morning with additional storms forming this afternoon across eastern New Mexico. These storms are generally moving to the south, but a few could cross into the western South Plains at times this evening.

You can keep an eye on the rain with our live streaming radar below.
A few showers could last into early tomorrow morning, but most of the rain should end overnight. Overall, it looks like we will stay dry for the Fourth of July with temperatures in the upper 60s in the morning and around 90 degrees in the afternoon. The sun will set at 9:01 with temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

After a mostly sunny and warm day on Sunday, a cold front will approach the region on Monday. We should still warm into the low 90s ahead of the front, but have a good chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will only warm into the low 80s on Tuesday with a continued chance for storms. We will carry a slight chance for storms into Wednesday with us eventually clearing out and temperatures gradually getting warmer going into the end of the week.

Happy Friday! I hope you have a fantastic Fourth of July and great weekend overall! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Christopher will have all the forecast updates for you this weekend.
