Well if you're having a bad day today, you can't blame it on the weather, because temperatures have been in the 70s all afternoon, and will likely top out around 80 degrees with complete sunshine overhead...a perfect day out! And if you like chilly mornings, I hope you got outside this morning because temps fell to 43 in Midland-Odessa, the coldest morning since mid-April. 

Another quiet evening is in store, with temps in the 70s. Sunset is getting earlier, now just after 7:30 pm here in West Texas. Those temps will fall into the 60s just after sunset. They'll continue to fall with clear skies tonight, settling down in the low 50s by Wednesday morning. 

We are expecting to warm up on Wednesday, as high temps rise above average, into the upper 80s. A weak front could push temps down a few degrees Thursday and Friday, but we'll still stay in the 80s, with lows in the 50s. 

Unfortunately, rain chances are staying extremely low over the next week as high pressure continues to build out west. By the weekend and into next week, high temperatures will likely fluctuate between the 80s and low 90s, as lows stay in the 50s/low 60s.
