It sure was nice to see all the scattered showers and thunderstorms across the South Plains yesterday. Click here for a look at the 24 hour rainfall totals from the West Texas Mesonet site and click here for a look at the 72 hour rainfall totals. It doesn’t look like we will see any rain tonight but we have some chances for rain late tomorrow into Sunday as a strong cold front moves through. Below is a look at our temperatures from today.
 
 
 

 
 
 

It is always hard to pinpoint the exact timing of when a front will move through but right now it looks like tomorrow’s front will move through late in the afternoon and evening. This means we should still warm to the upper 80s and lower 90s ahead of the front but once the front moves through we will start to cool. Winds behind the front will shift to the north and be sustained 20-30mph with gusts in excess of 40mph. With winds this strong you can expect some dust and dirt to be blown around. We also have a slight chance for some scattered showers and thunderstorms with some of the activity possibly lasting into early Saturday morning.

The wind will start to calm by Saturday afternoon and the clouds will clear however temperatures will stay cool as most of us only warm into the 70s. A gradual warming trend will have us back in the upper 80s and lower 90s by the middle of next week.

 
 
 
Join me tonight on the News at Nine for a closer look at this weekend’s weather setup. Matt will have an updated forecast including a more exact window for when the front will move through first thing tomorrow morning.
