Today may end up being the "coolest" day we've seen in weeks. High temps will likely top out around 95 degrees in Midland-Odessa, still above the average for this time of the year of 93...but considering where we've been, we'll take it. We're looking at scattered thunderstorms across the area this afternoon and evening. Nothing severe, and only about 20-30% of us will see rain.
Heading into Saturday, temperatures stay in the mid 90s though much of the area, but rain chances to decrease in the Permian Basin. Still, we're expecting some storms to develop mainly south and west of the Pecos River. Then high pressure builds back in and get ready for extreme heat Sunday-Monday.
On Sunday, we're expecting high temps in the 101-105 range in the Permian Basin. It only goes up on Monday, which could end up being the hottest day of the year for some locations. Highs ranging from 105-110 will be common in the Permian Basin. This will be dangerous heat, so be sure to drink plenty of water and stay away from the sun if you can!
For the rest of the week, temps drop into the 90s with isolated rain chances. Long range models show the potential for higher rain chances and lower temps heading into next weekend...we'll keep you updated.
