The tail end of a cold front has arrive to the Southern Panhandle, along and ahead of it we have had some showers develop for the afternoon. As the front pushes further south through tomorrow, it will continue our chances to see more rain.
Tonight we could see storms as late as the midnight hour, but we should have a small break in the early morning hours. By 7, 8, 9:00 the rain should return, especially for our western areas. Those along the New Mexico border will have the best chance for rain throughout the day, but that doesn't mean the rest of the area won't see some too.
With the front further south tomorrow, Lubbock should only get into the mid 80s with partly cloudy skies, but our southwestern counties will be warmer. Rain chances increase again overnight tomorrow night into early Wednesday morning.
On Wednesday, a separate system to the south west of here will push the front back to the north east. That means the afternoon should bring back 90 degree temperatures, but with the front stalled across the South Plains we will have a better chance for more widespread rain on Wednesday, particularly for our eastern areas.
The potential for rain again increases for Wednesday evening and overnight with the chance for some lingering storms through Thursday and as late as Friday. But Thursday, the front will push all the way through the rest of the area bringing us pleasant highs in the upper 70s.
Friday will begin the warm up again, back into the mid 80s with more sun in the forecast, and by Saturday a high pressure system returns to the area and will bring the drier conditions and temperatures back into the mid 90s and maybe even the upper 90s.
