It was the perfect day for a Tech win, lots of sun and temperatures near 80! But we are in for some significant changes starting tonight.

Clouds will be on the increase from the south overnight. They will act as a blanket keeping us mild to start off the day tomorrow, in the low 50s. As the clouds and moisture increase throughout the day it will also bump up our chances for rain.

Sunday Rain Potential
The rain will likely start first mid-morning for our southern and southwestern counties before it pushes north or northeast throughout the day. Our southeastern counties have the best chance to see the most significant rainfall as the afternoon progresses but the rest of the area should also get a pretty good taste.

Because of the clouds and moisture tomorrow, our high will only get up to about 70 with winds from the southeast at 5-15 mph. The rain does not stop there though. Models are showing Lubbock's best chance for rain to be in the overnight hours tomorrow and into early Monday morning.


Monday Rain Potential
After that the rain and clouds will taper off west to east throughout the day, but do not be surprised if some of those showers and maybe some thunder linger around. We'll then warm into the low 80s as a surface low pressure to our northwest pulls in some warm air and the sun returns a bit.

Cold Front Tuesday
A Cold front arrives Tuesday morning with some drier air behind it. That means we will see mostly sunny skies, but it also means we will cool down significantly and see some wind along with it. That north wind will be near 15 to 20 mph, gust a little stronger and expect the high to only reach the mid to upper 60s.


That is not the coldest we will get for the week though, Wednesday's high is only forecasted to be in the mid to upper 50s, almost 20 degrees below average! We'll have partly cloudy skies and winds near 5 to 10 mph. We could also see some rain on Wednesday evening, but chances are not that good.

We will warm back up for the end of the week but we will likely remain below average through the start of the weekend.
