Rain or wind, extreme heat or mild, what will this summer look like in West Texas? We have it directly from the National Weather Service.

If you haven't noticed, the summers have been getting hotter every year and triple-digit days are increasing yearly.

April and May will be warmer than average but there will be more rainfall than usual so get ready for humidity.

That means the outlook for summer is not going to be very cool, but if you are like me and enjoy warmer weather and never complain about the heat, it will be fine for us.

Those that do not like the heat of summer are going to be complaining a lot though because the forecast is calling for a hotter and drier summer than we usually see.

The hottest periods will be in late June to mid-July and then again in early August.

The Texas coast will have to be on the lookout for tropical storms and hurricanes more likely in late July to mid-August. It is not known if another storm like Harvey will strike the Texas coast, but the forecast says there is a chance.

Rainfall will not be abundant during the summer with May being the month that we get the most rain and June showing up as the driest month of this summer.

So get ready to be watering a lot this summer, it would be a good idea to have that water well put in this year, and also be prepared for plenty of triple-digit heat to happen over the summer of 2023 in West Texas.
