Even hotter for the weekend with dry, sunny conditions. High of 104 Saturday and 103 Sunday. Sunday will be a bit breezy to windy with stronger winds forecasted Monday. No burning this weekend as we remain stuck in drought, dry weather, and warm temps. Very slim rain chances in the forecast Tuesday and Wednesday but otherwise the hot and dry weather continues.

Drought update

The latest drought monitor update shows slight improvement for much of the South Plains. Unfortunately, little rain in the 7 day forecasts may set us back again in the coming week.
