Our recent run of blistering summer heat will continue right into Monday. Brief relief (a relative term for sure) is forecast to occur Monday night into the middle of next week as a weak cold front pushes south and west down the Eastern Plains. Our high temps are forecast to drop down into the mid to upper 90's...down from the 100º to 107º we've been experiencing. 

Rain? Maybe In The Mountains.

Model forecasts continue to hint that the best chances locally for seeing any meaningful rainfall through next Wednesday will be over and near the mountains. Thunderstorms are forecast to fire up along and behind the approaching weak cold front Monday night into Tuesday. There is the possibility that some of these storms may reach the Southeastern Plains but our chances of that happening are pretty slim. This mornings run of the GFS model offers the best hope for rain over Chaves and Lincoln Counties as well as across the Eastern Plains.
