Warm and mostly dry conditions will continue into tomorrow making us finally feel like summer is here! Temps will be rising a few degrees as an upper level ridge of high pressure continues to dominate the forecast for the remainder of the week.  It looks like much of the state won’t see the possibility of rain until the middle to end of next week, so enjoy the calm weather while you can!  Just in case you’ve forgotten what it’s like to have fun outside without needing an umbrella and rubber boots, the great folks at the National Weather Service office in Lubbock prepared this cute graphic to help you out!

Lows tonight will be mild and fairly muggy…especially across deep south Texas which may see some some patchy dense fog develop after midnight.  Other than that, not much else to talk about!

In case you haven’t seen it yet, the seasonal outlook for June from the Climate Prediction Center has us with an above average chance of seeing additional rainfall and above average chances for remaining a bit cooler than normal.  Our forecast models only go out about 10 days, so it’s impossible to pinpoint when we can expect rain during the remainder of the month.  But at some point it will return, and we’ll need it if we don’t want to lose the ground we gained this past month against our long-standing drought.
