Typically Hot Temps For Late June - Rain Returns In About A Week?.
We've undergone a transition recently as the jet stream has relaxed and pulled back to the north in Canada, This is allowing our summer time mid-upper level ridge of high pressure to settle in over the Western US. This has allowed the atmosphere to stabilize therefore effectively shutting down our crop of thunderstorms seen recently.
Our next best chance for rainfall over the southeastern plains will occur by the end of next weekend into the first of the following week (7-10 days from now). A few hit and miss afternoon thunderstorms will pop up over the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan Mountains from time to time. Until then we will see typical daytime high temps for late June in the mid-upper 90's with a few days topping the century mark next week.
The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
