FORECAST SUMMARY:

The hundred degree heat stretch should come to an end today. Expect highs in the upper 90’s under partly sunny skies. An increase in the humidity will make it feel a few degrees hotter. Cloud cover will increase this afternoon and evening. There is a slight chance of showers and storms during this time. Severe weather is not expected, however a brief heavy downpour and some lightning will be possible. The best chance of activity is for areas along and north of I-20. The far Northern Big Country does have the potential for a possible strong to severe storm.

Saturday will see those high temperatures stay just shy of the triple digit mark. An isolated shower or non-severe storm cannot be ruled out.

Triple digit heat will return Sunday as dry weather settles back in. There will be a breezy south wind.

Monday and Tuesday will see highs in the low hundreds with breezy south winds.

High temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will warm a few degrees. South winds will also increase as well. The forecast will stay dry.
