Sunny and hot, slight chance for storms

Connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.

It was another sunny and hot day across the South Plains with some of the hottest temperatures of the year so far. Below is a look at some of the morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
 
 
 

 
 
 

A few spotty showers and weak thunderstorms formed this afternoon around the state line and this trend could continue this evening. Any showers that do form will be moving to the northeast around 15-20mph, however they will not last long, and all will end shortly after sunset. You can keep an eye on the potential rain with our live streaming radar below.
We will have similar conditions again tomorrow with temperatures not quite as hot by the end of the week. There is also a small chance for a few showers and thunderstorms at the end of the week. With the high pressure system shifting to the northwest of us, the wind in the upper part of the atmosphere will be blowing from northwest to southeast. This will help push the storms that form in the mountains of Colorado and New Mexico down into the Panhandle and possibly the South Plains. On Wednesday it looks like the storms should stay to the north of us across the Panhandle, but Thursday through Saturday we will have a least a slight chance for storms. Right now it looks like most of us will miss out on these showers, but at least parts of the South Plains could see some rain, especially our northern counties.
 
 
 

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.
