It’s been a dreary and cool day across the South Plains with light drizzle and fog giving us damp conditions but certainly not much as far as measurable precipitation. That should change tonight as more lift moves across the region providing us with heavier showers overnight and into tomorrow morning. You can watch all the rain form and spread across the region with our live streaming radar below.
We will keep a steady north breeze overnight and tomorrow which will help usher in cooler air. Temperatures tomorrow morning will hover right around the freezing mark which means we could see some snow mixed in with the rain but with temperatures mainly staying above freezing we don’t expect any accumulations. The best chance to see any snow will be across our northern counties where it will be a little colder. All rain will exit from west to east tomorrow afternoon but clouds should stick around until tomorrow night. It will be another cloudy and cold day tomorrow with afternoon temperatures only warming into the 40s and 50s.

Rainfall amounts no longer look as impressive as they did yesterday. It now looks like we will only see spotty totals of .10’-.25” across the region. Below is a graphic produced by the Weather Prediction Center showing the forecasted rainfall amounts for tonight through tomorrow night.

Sunshine returns on Thursday helping to warm our temperatures back into the 70s. The wind should be fairly light, so overall a very nice day is in store for us. Wind will pick up on Friday and stay breezy into the beginning of next week with afternoon temperatures warming to the upper 70s and low 80s.

We could see our next rain at the beginning of next week as models have been hinting at a setup favorable for storms sometime between Monday and Wednesday. Stay tuned!

I will have an update on where we sit with our rain chances for tonight and tomorrow tonight on the News at Nine. Matt will have a full updated forecast tomorrow morning.
