Started off the day in the lower 70s in Lubbock, but temperatures will quickly warm up this afternoon. Mostly sunny skies and a light breeze from the south is expected today with high temperatures ranging from 95 to 102 degrees across the area. A bit hotter for those off of the caprock. Still no rain expected today through the weekend.

Overnight tonight, mostly clear and mild with a low of 67 degrees.

Your weekend is looking beautiful but hot with highs Saturday similar to Friday, but a degree or two cooler. Sunday will be a bit cooler as well with plenty of sunshine both days. A good weekend to spend at the pool or the lake, but remember to stay hydrated.

For now, this hot pattern looks to break down just a bit heading into next workweek, but temps still remain above average and rain chances remain minimal.
