Our triple digit stretch of temperatures across West Texas came to an abrupt end on Wednesday with an official high of 99 degrees at Mathis Field in San Angelo. This ends our streak of 100+ degree weather at 24 straight days. Although we did not break the all-time record of 28 straight days set back in 2011, we did record our fourth longest triple digit streak on record.
More heat is in the forecast as we head through the next week. High temperatures will stay steady near 100 degrees over the next few days. A slight heat up is expected as we start next week, with temperatures near 103 forecast on Monday.
Slight rain chances will be possible this afternoon and evening, with better chances across the Big Country. This will not be a drought buster, and coverage looks to only be about 10-20%, but we need any rain we can get.
Relief is possible, however, during the middle of next week with the arrival of a cold front. Models are in disagreement currently on the strength of this front, but it is possible that we can see temperatures back towards seasonal averages, or slightly below. Stay with the FOX West Texas Weather Team for the latest information.
Have a great Thursday!
