The tail end of a significant front that was dragged through the Panhandle has stalled out across the South Plains and provided some pretty significant rainfall totals for the north east portion of the area. If you would like to see 24 hour rain totals you can visit this link.

As that front sits it could cause some continued scattered showers and storms through tonight but they will like die down a little by morning meaning mostly decent conditions for high school football games. If a storm does pop up, be extra cautious of lightning and be prepared for gusty winds and rain. We will see another chance of rain tomorrow afternoon.

Despite that front, temperatures will still hover right near average. Starting in the mid 60s tomorrow morning and a high in the upper 80s. Wind will be near 10 to 15 mph with partly cloudy skies. Those clouds will bring a slight chance for showers and storms again, mainly for the afternoon. The further east you are, the better chance for rain you will have. That doesn't mean the rest of the South Plains couldn't see some isolated activity as well.

Sunday will likely be drier than Saturday with the exception of a very slight chance to see some isolated showers develop. Otherwise, mid 60s to start the day and upper 80s for a high.

Monday a weak boundary moves through again meaning a little cool down, into the mid 80s for a high. With that disturbance and tropical storm Ingrid off to our south, rain chances return Monday. How much Ingrid will impact us is still up in the air, models continue to disagree on the opportunity for rain on Tuesday and Wednesday.


As Ingrid continues to develop we will keep an eye on rain chances for mid week.


I'm once again in for Rudy tonight on the News at Nine and I'll be back tomorrow for the weekend! Happy Friday!
