After a nice little col down in the last two days we'll hover in the low to mid 90s for the end of the weekend and start of the work week.

The front that brought us the cooler temperatures has stalled out to our south and west. As it sits there it could create some showers and thunderstorms in New Mexico which could creep into the western part of the South Plains. The central South Plains could also see some of the action, but most rainfall will be scattered. Some of these scattered showers could produce moderate to heavy rainfall.

To track any showers that do come through, you can watch the live stream of our radar below.

By morning we should get a break from the rain for the most part. After 1 p.m. we'll get another chance to see some more scattered showers and storms. Models are disagreeing a little on where exactly the'll fall but our furher north and west counties will have the best chance.

Monday will be similar temperature wise to Sunday. Near 70 to start with a high in the low to mid 90s, but we should see a little more sunshine interwoven with the clouds across the area.

Tuesday brings a much smaller chance for any rain and slightly warmer temperatures, getting into the mid 90s for a high with mostly sunny skies. An upper level disturbance from a trough to our north east will provide a cold front that will slide through the area in the evening hours and that will provide below average temperatures once again mid week, near 90.


This front will pan out similarly to the one we just had, possibly stalling to our south bringing a continued slight chance for showers and storms for the area on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Still not exactly sure on who will have the best chance, because it's a little far out but we will keep an eye on it.
