Texas Tech takes on TCU in the Hub City this weekend, but it will be a scorching Saturday. Kickoff will take place in the heat of the day and highs will be in the mid 90’s. If we get that hot it will be our hottest day of October so far. Thankfully, as the sun goes down we will start to cool into the mid 80’s and once the game is over we will be in the upper 70’s. Breezy conditions will pick up by Saturday night in anticipation for the cool front that will move through Sunday.
Temperatures this afternoon will reach the lower 90’s which is ten degrees above average. It will be feeling more like Summer than Fall as we go into the end of the week. The heat won’t slack off until Sunday when a cool front starts to come through. We will start to see breezy conditions by Saturday night and more wind moving in by Sunday. This will knock our highs back down into the mid to lower 80’s just in time for a new week!
Have a great afternoon!
