We have seen some isolated showers barley skim the northwestern part of the area, over the Southern Panhandle. We could see a few more of those storms pop up but most of us will keep the mostly sunny skies through tomorrow morning. The low will be near 70 and we will have one more warm day with a high near 94.

Tomorrow afternoon brings our next best chance for storms. Those in the Southern Panhandle will again have the best potential for those storms, but some could develop in the southern and central portions of the area as well.

More showers could move through on Tuesday morning, too, as a cold front pushes through the Panhandle, but another system at the surface to the west of us will prevent the front from moving all the way through the South Plains. They will fight back and forth through Wednesday.

The Weather Prediction Ceter shows the south plains getting a few tenths of an inch, up to a half inch of rain over the next three days.

 
 
 


The cold front will win on Tuesday, rain chances again increase on Tuesday evening and we'll have cooler temperatures in the upper 80s. But the warm front from the south looks like it will win on Wednesday, so we could see another warm up into the 90s again by then. Wednesday is also when we have the most likelihood to see the most widespread rain.

 
 
 


Thursday is when the cold front finally pushes through the South Plains for good, so we will see some lingering showers again, but highs only in the upper 70s to low 80s. By Friday we should see things clear up a bit with mostly sunny skies and temperatures back in the 90s returning by Saturday.

We'll watch the rain potential in the coming days, stay tuned here and on FOX34! Matt will have your update in the morning!
