Mother nature doesn't quite want to see Summer go! Temperatures today are pushing 100 degrees across much of West Texas. Stay hydrated and takes breaks away from the sunshine if you have to be out in the heat! It's not often we see triple-digit heat in the 2nd half of September. 

We just have to make it through today, because a cold front is expected to move through overnight and into your Tuesday. It'll likely come through Midland-Odessa between 3 and 6 am. It will bring wind speeds 20-30 mph with some gusts as high as 40 mph. Temps will drop quite a bit as well. Expect high temps on Tuesday near 80 degrees, and expect low temps to drop into the low 50s by Wednesday morning. 

A few isolated showers and storms are possible today thanks to the daytime heating, but overall chances remain low. Then as the cold front moves through, we're likely to stay dry here in West Texas. The dry conditions will stay with us all week long under mostly sunny skies. The dry air will allow morning lows to drop into the 50s each day. Enjoy the Fall air!
