relatively quiet weather will continue through the weekend and
into next week across the panhandles. Ridge will continue to stay
over the area through the weekend leading to well above average
temperatures across the area through the weekend. Expecting near
record/record high temperatures across the area. Here's a breakdown of
record high temperatures for Saturday/Sunday across the panhandles:

Location.....Sat / sun

Amarillo.....88 / 90
Dalhart......91 / 92
Borger.......90 / 91

Based on this would not be surprised if a record or two is
tied/broken over the weekend.

After the unseasonably nice weekend is over front will invade the
panhandles late Monday and bring with it temperatures that are much closer
to normal for this time of year. Entirely possible that the front
could come in faster than the models have forecasted and temperatures on
Monday might be cooler than the current forecast is showing. It also
brings a chance of rain with it mostly confined to the northeast
portions of the panhandles. At this point only have slight chance
probability of precipitation in the form of rain, although most of the precipitation should stay
northeast of the area.

Forecast remains dry and quiet through the rest of the workweek into
the weekend.
