There are a few minor changes in our forecast for tonight and tomorrow which might actually mean that we see some rain. The cold front that we originally thought was going to stall out across the Texas Panhandle tonight and tomorrow now looks to move farther to the south and stall across our area. As the front pushes into the South Plains late tonight/early tomorrow we could see a few storms and then in the afternoon a few more storms could develop along the stalled out boundary. You can watch any potential storms across the Texas Panhandle and perhaps even our northern counties late tonight/early tomorrow with our live streaming radar below.

We will stay under a partly to mostly cloudy sky through tomorrow and with the added humidity temperatures will be mild in the morning starting off in the upper 60s and low 70s. Afternoon temperatures won’t be that bad as we top out in the mid 80s but it will be a lot more humid than we are used to. While it now looks like we have at least a slight chance to see some rain and thunderstorms, activity should remain isolated and storms fairly weak. Even with all the moisture in place there will be several limiting factors keeping the storms weak and rainfall amounts light. For those of you lucky to see any rain, rainfall amounts should range between .01” and .1”.

The center of the high pressure system that is currently to the southwest of us will start to move to the northeast and eventually right over us by the end of the week. This will help clear out the sky and warm our temperatures back to well above average. It looks like we will be stuck in this weather pattern for the foreseeable future with sunny conditions and afternoon temperatures around 100° through next week. It is summer after all, right?

 
 
 


I will take a look at the progress of the cold front tonight and give you an updated forecast and Matt will do the same first thing tomorrow morning on Ag Day Lubbock and Good Day Lubbock.

Less hot next few days, rain possible this weekend
It's still going to be well above the average, but not record heat tomorrow and next few days. There is a slim chance for a few storms Tuesday, but a better rain setup appears headed this way for the weekend.
