Showers have kind of fallen apart or at least slowed down but that doesn't mean we won't see more overnight tonight. The chance for these scattered storms will last through tomorrow morning. Our northern counties will have the best chance to see more action for tomorrow, likely not as widespread as today, but some of those showers and storms could move into more of the South Plains by the afternoon.
Temperatures will remain warm tomorrow, starting near 70 and getting into the low to mid 90s depending on how much sunshine we see. Clouds will move in and out as the day progresses. Tuesday will bring similar temperatures but likely a little break from the rain especially in the morning.
We could see some showers skim the area Tuesday but they're likely to avoid the South Plains until night time and the overnight hours. A significant upper level trough to our north east will then bring a cold front through West Texas near midnight, dropping our temperatures into the mid 80s for Wednesday with partly cloudy skies.
The front will stall out to our south providing showers early in the morning. As that stationary front sits, it will keep a chance for scattered showers through Friday. The cool down will also last through Thursday before we get back up to near 90 by Friday.
We could dry out a bit for next weekend as long as a high pressure to our west amplifies back into the area, we'll watch it's strength and the potential for a nice weekend as the week progresses.
Watch the News at Nine tonight with Henry, Bailey, Rob and I, I'll have an update on the rain then!
