THIS MORNING: It's mild and mostly clear, temperature in the upper 60s to low 70s. There have been some showers and storms in the far northeast TX Panhandle into Kansas and some rain around Wichita Falls earlier, now into Oklahoma. Around our area it's dry.

TODAY: It'll be warmer than yesterday, up around 94 in Lubbock beneath a mostly sunny sky, wind SW-S 10-15mph. It'll be a little warmer off of the Caprock:


By this afternoon into this evening a few thunderstorms are possible. The chance is lower than yesterday...most of us should miss out on the rain.

SUNNY DAYS AHEAD: Upper-level high pressure will build west, back closer to our area in the coming days and continuing through the weekend. This means it'll be mostly sunny with the high in the mid to upper 90s each afternoon. We don't see any significant chance for rain through the weekend into next week. A front might make it into the region to change things up a little bit by the middle of next week...but at this point we don't see much changing tomorrow through next Wednesday.


Thanks to Brian Ancell and staff at the Texas Tech Museum. I spoke with some students at a weather summer camp yesterday. I sure wish I had something like this when I was in middle school...a summer camp dedicated entirely to weather and science. I enjoyed the visit. If your class or group would like a visit from a member of our weather staff just e-mail

Have a great day, look for the next forecast update from Rudy this afternoon.
