FORECAST SUMMARY:

Hundred degree heat will stay in the forecast for today. A HEAT ADVISORY will remain in effect through 8:00 p.m. Friday evening. Expect highs to range from 102° to around 106°. There will be a breezy south wind under a mostly sunny sky. Fire weather will be a concern with dry air in place. Burn Bans are in effect for most of the Big Country including Taylor County.

The winds will settle on Friday as the oppressive heat continues. Areas north of I-20 have a small chance of showers and non-severe storm during the evening.

Well above average temperatures will continue this weekend. There is a 20% chance of showers and storms on Saturday.

Monday will see the hottest temperatures of the forecast stretch. Expect highs in the middle to upper 100’s under mostly sunny skies.

Tuesday will see high temperatures back in the middle 100’s with a slight easterly breeze.

Some of the medium range computer models are showing a brief break from the hundred degree heat with some rain chances during the middle part of next week. Right now I am just going with a 20% chance of showers and storms for Wednesday.
