AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Today will be much like what we saw yesterday with mostly sunny skies, light winds, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s. A few showers and storms will be possible across eastern New Mexico, but the majority of us will remain dry.

If you see a haze or “milky” look to the sky this afternoon, it’s not cloud cover, it’s smoke from the wildfires from the pacific NW and SW Canada. The jet stream (upper-level winds) are steering the smoke into our area. If you have respiratory/allergy concerns, you might want to avoid spending a lot of time outside!

Wednesday we’ll see highs slightly warmer into the upper 80s with a slight chance of a shower or storm. After Wednesday, we’ll start to see highs climb back into the 90s, closer to where we should be about for this time of year with more summer-like weather.
