Once again, today will be a near repeat of yesterday. This afternoon will be partly cloudy and hot. Winds will become a bit breezy late in the afternoon. Highs will range from near 90 in the northwest to just above 100 degrees in the east.

There is a very low chance of a stray storm in the area. I don’t expect measurable rain.

There will be little change the next three days. Thursday through Saturday will be mostly sunny. The breeze will occasionally pick up to about 10 to 20 mph. Each day will be a tad hotter. Lubbock area temperatures will peak in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees.

I do have a bit of good news concerning our next chance of rain. Data this morning is more supportive of storms, showers, and rain, Sunday through Tuesday.
