We started off the day with scattered showers and thunderstorms across most of the region. Click here for a look at the 24 hour rainfall totals from the West Texas Mesonet Sites. Due to the rain this morning and added cloud cover throughout the day our temperatures were cooler. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today. 


We could see a few storms this evening especially across our western counties. Coverage will likely be spotty and storms should not last that long. You can keep an eye on all the potential storms with our live streaming radar below.
We have a much better chance for storms tomorrow. If we see more sunshine and our temperatures warm into the upper 80s and lower 90s as expected then a few isolated storms could form in the afternoon heat. These storms will have the potential to become severe, producing large hail and strong wind gusts. We have a much better chance for more widespread rainfall later on at night as a cold front moves through. Along the front we could see a line of storms form producing heavy rainfall at times. While all of us have a chance for storms, the best chance and heaviest rain will likely fall across our northern counties.

All the rain should exit by Thursday afternoon as we are left with much cooler temperatures, afternoon highs in the 70s and 80s. This cool down will be short lived though as high pressure builds in from the west. Temperatures will warm back into the 80s on Friday and 90s over the weekend as our rain chances diminish.

I hope you had a great day! I will step you through the forecast tonight after the MLB All-star game on a late edition of the News at Nine and Caitlin will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
