FORECAST: There was record-breaking heat today, we may see it again tomorrow

Meteorologist Tevian Whitehurst has the Thursday evening forecast.


Not only has today been the hottest day of the week so far, it’s also a record breaker for high temperatures for most of West Texas. Both San Angelo and Abilene beat their records of 83 and 82 degrees respectively. Lows tonight will be in the mid-50s, which is around a full 10 degrees warmer tonight than last night and other nights this week. Today is National Mutt Today, we’ve got your dog walking forecast. The rest of the tonight will have nice conditions, the sun going down will help you and your pup cool down; tomorrow will be like today, nice weather but a bit hot with highs in the mid-80s during peak afternoon. Tomorrow is less likely to be record breaking, but it’ll still be a hot day. I know it’s the hottest December I’ve ever experienced. Heading into the weekend, a weak cold front on Saturday will drop our temperatures down into the mid-70s for the weekend, and a much stronger cold front on Sunday will drop Monday’s highs into the 50s. Tuesday, we’ll rebound back into the mid-70s to continue with another warm, dry week, but not before one last cold front that will appear on Wednesday.
