It'll be another hot day across the area today. Lubbock will reach around 95° this afternoon with mostly sunny skies. The ridge of high pressure has moved a little to the east, meaning we're right on the edge of it here in the South Plains. That's going to allow a few showers and storms to develop today, primarily in our western and northwestern counties. It's about a 20% chance of rain in that part of the viewing area, so most of us should remain dry. Friday will also have a slight chance of rain in the same area.
This weekend looks hot and dry, with temperatures remaining in the mid to upper 90s both Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will drop a few degrees (not much!) to start next week. A cold front will be moving toward us, but as of now, it looks like it'll likely become stalled to our north across the Panhandle. Where the front does reach, there'll likely be some good chances for rain. Because the front will likely stay to our north, our chance is only about 10% for Monday and Tuesday, with slightly higher chances in our northern counties. We'll keep a watch on this over the next few days to see if the front will indeed remain to our north, or make it further south into our area.
I'll have the hour-by-hour forecast all morning on Good Day Lubbock, and Rudy will have a full update later today.
