WARM TODAY: It's a mild start, generally 60s for most of the area. There is some moisture with the dew point in the 40s across most of the area. It'll warm up today and there could be a few isolated storms late this afternoon, mainly south of Lubbock. But it's only a slim chance, models have backed off on the chance quite a bit.

It'll top out near 87 in Lubbock, breezy SW wind 15-25mph. Sunset this evening will be at 8:41 p.m. Here is the forecast for the area:


NEXT FEW DAYS: Upper-level ridging will build in from the west, leading to hotter afternoons with just a few clouds each day. There could be a few isolated storms over the Rolling Plains, east of Lubbock, tomorrow. Tomorrow's high near 93. It'll get a little hotter late this week into the weekend.

Some model runs have shown enough moisture late this week for a few isolated storms east of the dry line late this week. But it doesn't look likely, since we'll have that ridge on top of our region, making the cap pretty strong. We'll have to wait to see the small-scale setup each day to see if any isolated storms can develop later this week.

A weak front should move through late this weekend, knocking the high back down to the 80s Monday.


Have a great day, Rudy will have your next forecast later today.
