CLEAR WEATHER: Behind the cold front that moved through Friday night we had some cool mornings this weekend, 37 yesterday morning in Lubbock. This is the coolest reading here since 37 degrees on May 5. It's not quite so cool this morning...generally 40s across the South Plains, some upper 30s to the west and low 50s off the Caprock.

You can expect lots of sunshine next few days, high near 84 in Lubbock today, wind SW/S 5-15mph. Sunset tonight in Lubbock is 7:23 p.m. Next few days will be similar, with the wind getting a little stronger.

NEXT STORM SYSTEM: We have to look to the Pacific Northwest coast to find our next storm system. Ahead of it is weak upper-level ridging, keeping it sunny. The next storm system will move across the western United States through this week. Ahead of it the wind will slowly get stronger, likely strongest Thursday and Friday. This system will push a front through here, knocking the temperature down a little by the weekend...highs likely in the 70s.

A few model runs have shown rain late Friday or Saturday as the trough passes north of here, but the latest trend has been to keep the rain southeast of here. For now we'll keep the forecast dry.

Another storm system may take a farther south track next week. If so, this could bring some rain. It's too far out for anything accurate at this point. This is just something we'll watch next few days.


Have a great day. Rudy will have an update to the forecast later today.
