It is officially Summer in Lubbock and that means over the next couple of months, it's going to be hot and probably pretty dry.

We've already seen triple digit heat in Lubbock twice officially at the airport and hit 99 degrees a few more times. And this week we are likely to see triple digit heat Tuesday through Friday.

So how hot is it going to be this Summer in West Texas?

If the trends are correct, we can expect it to be a hot one in West Texas. And no, it doesn't matter how June starts.

In 2023, Lubbock saw its first 100 degree day on June 19th, which we are way ahead of already. By the end of June, the National Weather service reports that Lubbock had hit triple digits on 9 different days. And some of those days were really hot with temperatures hitting as high as 109 degrees. Add up the entire Summer, and year really, and Lubbock recorded 46 days above 100 degrees for 2023.
