We've been consistently in the mid 90s for the last week here in West Texas, but today things are heating up a bit more. High temps will be closer to the 100-degree mark as we head into the late afternoon and early evening. Bright sunshine is expected for nearly all of West Texas with no rain chances. And just like the past several days, temps won't fall below 90 until 9-10 pm.
As we head into the weekend, Saturday is expected to be a very similar day to what we've experienced today. High temps will once again rise to near the 100-degree mark. We will start to see some changes on Sunday though. The day will start very warm as highs reach the mid 90s, but a cold front will move through in the 2nd half of the day.
The front on Sunday will bring in higher wind speeds of 20-25 mph in the evening and into the night. Scattered showers and storms are also anticipated, especially in SE New Mexico and the northern Permian Basin. Midland-Odessa's rain chances will be at around 20%.
The front will keep temps Monday-Wednesday a bit below average, near 90 degrees. There will also be scattered rain chances each day, but we're not expecting widespread coverage. We do need the rain though, so stay updated with us!
