Hot weather remains on tap for the forecast for the next couple days
as the upper level ridge meanders across the Southern Rockies. High
temperatures are expected to rise into the upper 80s and 90s across
the Panhandles Today and Tuesday. By Wednesday, the ridge axis moves
back over the Panhandles to allow highs to increase back into the
upper 90s to 105 degree range. Temperatures at the base of Palo Duro
Canyon could reach into the 102 to 108 degree range once again due to
southwest winds of 15 to 20 mph.

Wednesday evening, the upper ridge shifts far enough southward for
shortwaves to eject from the Southern Rockies and bring a slight
chance for precip across the northwestern Texas and western Oklahoma
Panhandles. A zonal to occasionally southwesterly flow aloft pattern
is anticipated to set in over the Panhandles from Thursday through
the upcoming weekend. This will allow low end precip chances to
spread across the area. Severe weather is not anticipated with these
rounds of precip however, a few strong storms can`t be ruled out.
