Lubbock and other parts of the South Plains are under a slight rick for severe weather. Areas alone and east of I-27 will have the best chance, and so far the Panhandle is seeing the best chance for anything to develop first. The main threats with any isolated storms we may see will be large hail and damaging winds. Below is Storm Prediction Center's Severe outlook through tomorrow morning.

Things will calm down by tomorrow morning and we'll start in the mid 60s with mostly clear skies. Sunshine should last through Memorial Day afternoon and that, combined with southerly winds near 20 mph, will really help us warm up close to 100. Instability along the dry line returns for the afternoon. So isolated storms, some of which could become severe are possible. Below is the Storm Prediction Center's severe outline for Memorial Day.
Be sure to be prepared for the weather if you're going to be celebrating outdoors. Have sunscreen and plenty of water for hydration throughout the day. Also be aware of the chance for storms to develop and become dangerous very quickly.
Tuesday morning begins in the upper 60s and we'll get a slight cool off for the afternoon with a high near 90. A surface low pressure will pull in some moisture for the start of the week which will help fuel more storms, especially on Tuesday afternoon and evening. This is where we have the most energy to produce severe storms. That energy will be in place through Wednesday morning and will taper off in the afternoon.
We will see a mixture of clouds and sun through Wednesday until a little more sun comes out for the end of the workweek with temperatures in the low 90s.
We could have another slight chance for storms come next weekend, but because it is so far out there is plenty of uncertainty still. We will keep an eye on that as it gets closer.
