The temperatures were not quite as hot today as they have been over the past couple of days although they were still right around average. Below is a look at some of the morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
We will see a few spotty showers and thunderstorms this evening and while the coverage should be isolated, where it does rain there could be some heavy downpours.

We will hold on to a slight chance for a few isolated showers and thunderstorms again tomorrow, but then at the end of the week we will have a slightly better chance for rain. With the center of high pressure moving to the northwest of us across the Four Corners region, the wind aloft will shift to a northwesterly direction. This will help push down any storms that form across Colorado and New Mexico into the Panhandle and possibly the South Plains. The best chance for rain will remain across our northern counties, but if these storms could congeal into a complex they might be able to stay together long enough to cross most of the South Plains. This trend will continue into the beginning of next week.
With the high pressure system off to the northwest of us and more clouds in the sky, plus the potential for scattered showers, our temperatures will not be as warm to end out the week. Afternoon temperatures will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s with even cooler temperatures possible where it rains.
I hope you had a great day! 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.
