Weather Forecasts

KRBC AM Forecast: Tuesday, April 17, 2018

This Morning: Warm and breezy to start your Tuesday. Temperatures are in the upper 50s and 60s across the Big Country this morning. Winds are out of the south, ranging from 10 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. Skies are mostly clear across West Texas. Expect skies to stay mostly sunny through the morning as winds become as high as 15 to 25 mph with temperatures warming into the 70s by mid morning. 

This Afternoon: Feeling a lot more like Summer today as highs warm into the 90s across the entire Big Country, with a few mid and upper 90s possible through the northwestern Big Country. Unfortunately again today, critical to historic fire conditions are possible for some of our western and northwestern counties where we continue to see extremely dry conditions, humidity values from 5% to 15% and southerly wind gusts up to 35 mph. Fire Weather Warnings go into effect this morning until tonight for the western Big Country and much of West Texas. The rest of the Big Country will see hot conditions today with mostly sunny skies and southerly winds up to 25 mph, but with slightly higher humidity values. 

Tonight: Expect winds to stay breezy even after sunset. Our next cold front moves in early tomorrow morning as temperatures drop into the mid 50s and winds become northerly around 10 to 20 mph. 

Looking Ahead: Tomorrow mornings cold front will help keep our temperatures below average the rest of the week. A return of low-level moisture will help limit the fire threat starting Thursday. Chance for showers and thunderstorm Friday afternoon into Saturday afternoon. While the chance has shifted in time and shifted further south, one or two storms could be severe during the time frame. Another cold front moves in Saturday afternoon, keeping temperatures below average to start next week. 

Average High: 78°
Average Low: 52°

Sunrise: 7:07 a.m.
Sunset: 8:10 p.m.
