KTXS Forecast: More heat for the work week
ABILENE, Texas - Summer heat stays in full swing for the work week. Triple-digit readings will be likely on a few days. A small rain chance will be possible for western areas this afternoon. Rain chances become nil for the rest of the week after today.
Today, look for mostly sunny skies with breezy winds out of the south at 15 to 20 mph. Winds could gust up to 25 to 30 at times. It will be hot today with temperatures maxing out in the upper 90s and possibly low 100s. A slight chance for a t-storm will be possible for far western Big Country counties today. Storms may fire up near Midland and Lubbock and drift eastward into the viewing area before fading out for the night.
Tonight, any t-storm that makes it into our far western Big Country counties will fade a few hours after sunset. Afterwards, we should have partly cloudy skies becoming mostly clear. Lows should drop into the upper 70s with winds still breezy from the south at 15 to 25 mph.
Tuesday through next Sunday will be very much the same each day. The weather pattern will have a ridge of high pressure wobbling around the South-Central U.S. which will keep the heat and very low chance for a shower in the forecast.
We should see sunny to mostly sunny skies each day with upper 90s to lower 100s during the afternoons through at least Sunday of next week.
Winds will slow some from the south after Wednesday but remain slightly breezy.
Have a great week!
