Rain, rain and more rain! That is what we have seen so far today and will continue to the rest of the night and I don’t hear anybody complaining. Not only have we seen a steady amount of rain but rainfall has been heavy at times as well with Plainview receiving just below 6 inches of rain in the past 24 hours alone! Click here

For the third day in a row we broke the daily record for the coolest high temperature as we only warmed to 77° this afternoon in Lubbock. The previous record was 79°. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
Rain will continue across the South Plains tonight eventually clearing for east to west tomorrow. There will be enough moisture in place that we could see a few spotty showers and thunderstorms form tomorrow afternoon but coverage will be isolated. We could see another half of an inch of rain across our western counties before all the rain ends but for the most part rainfall amounts will be light going forward.
High pressure will start to take control of our weather at the end of the week clearing out our sky and warming our temperatures. We will warm back to near average temperatures, with morning lows in the upper 60s and afternoon highs in the low 90s by the beginning of next week.
I will have an update on where the rain is and how much more we could see tonight on the News at Nine. Matt will have a full updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
