A stationary front sits right across West Texas, east to west. As it does, it brings us scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, which will have the chance to linger into this evening. We should get a small break early morning, with a low near 70, before another chance for similar storms tomorrow afternoon.

Lubbock should get up to the low 90s, with our northwestern counties a few degrees cooler and our southern areas a few degrees warmer, thanks to the front stretching across the South Plains. As it hovers there, we'll have a chance for more storms and showers, just like we've had the last few evenings.

The better chance for more rain coverage will be on Monday afternoon. First, we will drop to near 70 again, but only warm to about 90 as the stationary front pushes further to the south and west. As it does, expect scattered storms, especially in the afternoon.

The front begins to fall apart on Tuesday, but don't be surprised if some lingering showers or storms pop up as late as the early morning hours. Most of us should be clear of the rain by Tuesday afternoon, but some clouds should stick around through Wednesday.


By then a high pressure system will build back up into the region bringing warmer temperatures back up into the mid to upper 90s with more sun in the forecast as well.

We are on at 6:00 for FOX34 News Saturday and we return after the Texas Boys Ranch Telethon for a late News at Nine!
