Some very welcome rain fell across the South Plains over the last day. Some rain totals from the last 24 hours as of 5:00 p.m are included below.
HOBBS, NM: 0.41 in. DENVER CITY: 0.67 in. SEMINOLE: 0.70 in. TATUM: 0.68 in. DORA, NM: 0.43 in. LAKE ALAN HENRY: 0.42 in. MORTON: 0.41 in. SUNDOWN: 0.40 in. SEAGRAVES: 0.11 in. GAIL: 0.07 in.
The rain has moved east out of the area, but we have another chance to see more by the end of the weekend. Fathers day should be warm, starting near 70 and warming to the mid 90s with mostly sunny skies and a light breeze. There is a slight chance for storms in the evening and overnight hours, if we see any on the South Plains, they will be light and scattered.
We'll dry up slightly once again Monday morning, dropping to near 70 and getting into the mid 90s again. We'll have more moisture by the afternoon though and that will foster some clouds and a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms once again, likely in the afternoon.
Our best chance to see more rain will be overnight Monday into Tuesday morning, and we could see some showers and storms linger through Tuesday afternoon and night as a weak cold front swings through the area. That will also drop us back into the upper 80s to low 90s for Tuesday, but as a high pressure system amplifies to our south we'll get back into the mid to upper 90s for mid and end of the week.
We could be on late tonight for the News at Nine, but join us after the baseball game!
