Line of storms passing through the South Plains this evening. The main threat with this storm will damaging wind gusts in excess of 65 mph. The line of storms is moving east at about 50 mph. Strong gusts and lack of sufficient rainfall reaching the surface will mean blowing dust, reducing visibility.
This chance of storms will last until about the midnight hour for most of the South Plains when this line of storms starts to work it's way out of the area. They will mainly be isolated in nature with little to no rainfall amounts and the occasional lightning strike. The main threat will continue to be damaging winds as these storms continue through. There have been reports of very low visibility along this line of storms due to blowing dust.
Behind this line of storms we'll see drier conditions with a low tomorrow morning in the low 40s and sunny skies throughout the day with a high near 70. Winds will also calm down a bit coming fro the east northeast before noon and shifting to coming from the southwest by the afternoon. Tuesday will be very similar but a system arrives Wednesday morning dropping our afternoon temperature to the low 60s.
We'll have a big jump in temperatures come Thursday as a low pressure system pulls in the warm air, starting off in the low 50s and reaching about 80 for the afternoon. We have a very slight chance of light rain but we will continue to watch that chance as the week progresses. A cold front will shortly follow on Friday dropping us back into the low 60s and into the 50s for Saturday.
Stay tuned here form more updates as the line of storms continues through the South Plains.
