National Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
245 PM CDT Wed Jul 6 2022

.DISCUSSION...

Despite above-normal temperatures each day through next week, an
increase in low-level moisture will result in minimum relative
humidity staying above critical levels in most locations.  A
chance of thunderstorms will persist each afternoon and evening,
mainly over the higher terrain.  Recovery overnight and Thursday
night will be moderate to excellent.  Relative humidity will
bottom out at 14-40% Thursday afternoon, and 15-36% Friday.
