A Heat Advisory continues across the southern and eastern Big Country until this evening. Parts of the central Big Country have been dropped from the advisory due to a cold front that is expected this afternoon.
The front is already making its way into the northern Big Country this morning, bringing a couple very isolated, light showers to our northern counties. The cold front will stall over the northwestern Big Country this afternoon, producing isolated showers and thunderstorms after the lunch hour and through the overnight into Wednesday morning. High temperatures today will still climb to around 100° ahead of the front, and the upper 90s behind it. No severe weather is expected with the thunderstorms.
Temperatures will finally drop out of the triple-digits Wednesday and Thursday thanks to today’s cold front, but we start heating back up again as we head into the weekend. Temperatures return to the triple-digits again as early as Friday and through the beginning of next week.
