QUIET PATTERN: There are some subtle changes from yesterday to today, but the overall quiet pattern will continue. It's a clear morning with the temperature in the 40s and 50s. There are some high clouds moving across New Mexico, which will skirt this way later today. Yesterday's high in Lubbock was 82, it should be just a few degrees warmer, S wind 10-20mph.

NEXT FEW DAYS: An upper-level storm system that's over the Pacific Northwest today will move down the coast next few days, then eventually cross the Rockies Thursday into Friday. The storm system will go too far north to bring a significant chance for rain here. We'll see the mid 80s again tomorrow before dropping back closer to 80 rest of the week.

As the storm system approaches there might be enough moisture for an isolated shower or storm east of Lubbock Thursday, but the chance doesn't look good. Another wave behind this first storm system will also pass across the region, bringing some rain to Central Texas this weekend...again looks like the rain will stay east of our area.

The wind will be a little gusty each day this week, likely the strongest wind, sustained above 20mph during the day, will come Thursday and Friday.

FRIDAY NIGHT FORECAST: 7:30 p.m. kickoffs in the low 70s, falling to the upper 50s late, a few clouds.

TEXAS TECH FORECAST: 11 a.m. kick at Jones Stadium close to 70, afternoon high near 80, few clouds around.


Rudy will have a complete update to your forecast later today. Have a good day.
