We've had some decent rainfall totals in the last couple of days. Below is a list of some stand out totals from the last 72 hours. For more, you can visit this website.

Caprock Canyons State Park: 3.83 in.
Anton: 3.67 in.
Gail: 3.09 in.
Silverton: 2.28 in.
Muleshoe: 2.17 in.
Jayton: 2.05 in.

Along with the rain, last night's round of storms also brought large hail, damaging wind and even a tornado that touched down north west of Sundown. You can find video of damage on myfoxlubbock.com's home page. The South Plains is clear of any rain so far this morning besides some showers over Lovington in New Mexico. That will be the case for the rest of the morning and afternoon until another possibility to see some storms exists.

A high pressure is sitting over the region and will do so for the next week, but a deep upper level trough to our northwest will also be impacting us for the afternoon hours in the coming days.

This trough is keeping moisture in the area and providing some instability for our far western counties. That mixed with day time heating into the mid 90s will fuel some isolated convective storms along the New Mexico border. We will definitely have the energy in place for these storms, but a cap will limit their development. If they do form, some could be severe with large hail and damaging winds possible.

 
 
 


Because the high and low hover near the same place over the coming days, our hot temperatures, some moisture and the possibility of late day storms to the west will be the trend for much of the rest of the 7 day outlook.

Otherwise, lows near 70 and highs near the mid 90s with mostly sunny skies will be the main story.

I will have more weather this morning on Good Day Lubbock and Matt will have your updated forecast this evening on the News at Nine!
Have a great day!
