Another unseasonably warm November day is underway. In fact, with plenty of sunshine, and light southwest winds of 10 mph – temperatures will soar back into the 80’s this afternoon. If Amarillo reaches 85, this will break the old record of 84 from 2009. Tomorrow will continue to be nice and warm, but also breezy. Dry southwesterly winds could gust as high as 30 mph, helping to push numbers back into the 80’s for one more day. Amarillo could reach as warm as 87 degrees, breaking the old record of 86, set back in 1934. Of course, with this warm and dry weather underway, keep an eye on all wildfire concerns!
Wednesday looks to continue breezy but not as warm with blustery north winds, and highs in the 70’s. Thursday will be much cooler with a blend of 50’s and low 60’s. The nighttime hours will chill into the low 30’s, while Friday should top out near 60. Saturday (Veterans Day), and Sunday look to hover in the cool 50’s and low 60’s. As of this writing, rain or snow chances will stay minimal through the upcoming weekend.
Have a great and enjoyable week, everyone!
