A few showers and storms formed across our southwestern counties this afternoon and similar activity will continue into the evening staying mainly to the south and west of Lubbock. Showers will be brief and rainfall will be light. You can check out where it’s raining with our live streaming radar below.
Even with a few extra clouds and some rain across the area temperatures were plenty hot today. After most of us starting off in the mid 70s we warmed into the triple digits this afternoon breaking the previous daily record high of 102° in Lubbock set back in 2011 as we warmed to 105°! Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
A cold front will move down into the Texas Panhandle tomorrow and will be the focus for storm development. Most of the rain tomorrow will stay to the north of us unless the cold front moves farther south than anticipated. We will still hold on to a slight chance for storms mainly to the north of Lubbock.
The front will push through the South Plains on Thursday providing all of us with about a 20% chance for storms. This will also shift the wind to the north although it shouldn’t be too strong, staying below 20mph. That being said, with a light north wind and also the center of high pressure shifted off to the east, our temperatures won’t be quite as hot to end out the week; in the low to mid 90s versus upper 90s and 100s.
We could see a few storms again on Friday although Friday’s forecast depends a lot on what happens with the cold front and any storms on Thursday. The center of high pressure will start to build back in over the weekend which will clear us out and warm our temperatures.
I hope you have had a great day so far! I will give you a full update on any rain still across the South Plains tonight on the News at Nine. Matt will have a full updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
