Good Tuesday morning everyone. Showers and storms in the area from last night are dwindling, and we're left with overcast skies but we'll have another round of rain later on this afternoon.
Morning temperatures are in the 70s with the clouds hanging in place but they will break up as we progress throughout the day.
This afternoon will be another sultry one with high humidity and 90s and 100s out there. Once again, make sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and limit your time outdoors to avoid any heat-related illnesses. Also, limit the amount of time your pets are outside as the heat can be dangerous for them as well.
The best chance for storms will be in our western counties but we'll keep a 20% probability for rain in Amarillo, and lesser chances to the east.
Looking forward, a few more isolated storms will come to the area Wednesday afternoon while we stay just as hot.
Thursday and Friday will be more clear with highs coming up a few degrees, then this weekend upper-level winds will bring the next batch of thunderstorms our way, mainly in the evenings.
Stay cool and have a great day!
