Scattered showers and a few weak thunderstorms continue to spread north/northeast across the region. This trend will continue into tomorrow until a cold front moves through and pushes all of the moisture out.

Below is our live streaming radar showing where all the rain is.
It still looks like the anticipated cold front will move through tomorrow morning and clear the area by early afternoon. Our best chance for rain will be along the front as it moves through and that being said, the heaviest rain will come as the front interacts with the richer moisture across the Rolling Plains and across our southern counties. Below is a graphic from the Weather Prediction Center, a branch of the National Weather Service, which shows their forecast for rainfall amounts across the region for tonight through tomorrow night. It shows a quarter to half of an inch for most of us with over an inch of rain possible across our southern most counties and parts of the Rolling Plains. Most of the heavier rain will be held to the south of us.

Behind the front we will have a steady north/northeast breeze about 10-20mph with temperatures only warming into the 70s. Drier air will move in helping to clear out the sky and push out all of the rain just in time for the area high school football games. With a mostly clear sky overhead and drier air in place, our temperatures will cool down into the 50s each morning this weekend. We will only warm into the low to mid 80s each afternoon with sunny to mostly sunny conditions. Below is a look at the Texas Tech Gameday forecast.

We will warm back into the upper 80s by the middle of next week with no good sign for any more rain at this moment.

I hope you had a great day! I will update you on where all the rain is and where it is moving tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
