Finally a break from the rain! Skies are mostly clear across the Big Country this morning with temperatures hovering in the lower 60s. Watch for areas of patchy fog in low-lying areas before mid-morning. Sunny skies return today with highs in the mid 80s.
Summer starts moving in as we head into the weekend with some serious heat in store Saturday and Sunday. Highs will climb into the mid 90s this weekend with sunny skies, but the heat index will feel more like 100° both days. A perfect weekend to hit the pool, but be sure to stay cool and hydrated if you plan on being outdoors this weekend!
A cold front Sunday evening will bring in another chance for rain though Sunday night and Monday, along with cooler weather to start next week. Rain chances should exit again by the middle of next week though as warmer weather returns.
