Thursday through Saturday will basically be carbon copies of one another! We will start each day off in the 60s and 70s under a mostly clear sky, with winds out of the southwest around 10-15 MPH. We will keep a mostly sunny sky around the region each day, with temperatures peaking in the 90s to lower 100s.

Monsoon showers and storms will return to the forecast on Sunday, and remain through at least the middle of next week. Eastern New Mexico and extreme western Texas will have the highest likelihood of seeing isolated showers and storms each afternoon through the early overnight hours. High temperatures will remain in the 90s to lower 100s each day, with a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky remaining in place across the forecast area. Morning lows will bottom out in the 60s and 70s each morning. Winds will be strong at times, gusting upwards of 35-40 MPH out of the south-southwest. Rain chances will begin to slightly increase by the middle of next week as a weak disturbance tries to move into the South Plains.
