It sure was nice to wake up to scattered showers and thunderstorms across the South Plains this morning! Storms stayed fairly weak as it turned out to be just a much needed rain event across this drought stricken region. Click here

for a look at the 72 hour rainfall totals. Spotty showers will continue this evening before eventually clearing out by early tomorrow morning. Our live streaming radar shows all the action below.
Clouds will slowly clear throughout the day tomorrow and it will turn out to be pretty nice, with high temperatures in the upper 70s and a light northeast wind around 5-15mph. Clouds will continue to clear setting us up with a gorgeous Mother’s Day. We will start off Sunday morning in the low to mid 50s and warm to the upper 70s and low 80s under a bright sunny sky.
The low pressure system responsible for all the rain we have seen this week will move down into northern Mexico over the weekend but then will track back over Texas during the middle of next week. The current track brings it just to the south and east of us but close enough to possibly provide us with another round of showers and thunderstorms. Right now it looks like this will take place on Tuesday but depending on when the low pressure system moves through this could change.
I hope you have a great weekend and enjoyed the rain we have seen this week! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Caitlin will have all the forecast updates for you through the weekend.
