We got a little rain in the last 24 hours due to the storms that came through last night. The totals below are from the West Texas Mesonet as of 4:30.
Denver City: 0.64 in.
Brownfield: 0.19 in.
Hart: 0.18 in.
Anton: 0.16 in.
Levelland: 0.11 in.
Reese Center: 0.09 in.
Those totals are not very impressive compared to the amount of rain we got earlier in the week, but we'll take any rain we can get in this drought. We could get more rain tonight with another chance for storms as an upper level trough to our northwest provides moisture and instability and a dry line sets up along the border.

If storms do develop, they will likely start just east of the New Mexico border and move east slowly. There could be periods of heavy rainfall, hail up to golf ball size and damaging winds with these storms. As the evening progresses and storms move across the South Plains, they are likely to weaken significantly before they reach the Rolling Plains.
After midnight storm energy should be used up and we'll start to clear up. Mostly sunny skies, lows near 70 and highs in the mid to upper 90s will be the trend for the next couple days along with a chances for storms in the evening for tomorrow and Monday.
Temperatures really start to climb as the high pressure system to our south west starts to push the upper level trough out of the area. That will bring us drier conditions, clear skies and temperatures near 100 degrees.
Henry, Nick and I will have your local news, sports and more weather tonight on the News at Nine. We could be late because of the Rangers game tonight.
have a great weekend!
