You'll see short updates below as the evening progresses. 

update 9:59 p.m. - The rain is still falling around our area, moving SW to NE. While coverage will diminish some...we'll keep a chance for some more rain through morning. The chance gets lower through the day Wednesday. Here are some top rain totals on the Tech Mesonet through 9:50 p.m.:

Seagraves 1.44"
Wolfforth 1.41"
Floydada 1.39"
Tahoka 0.88"
Near Texas Tech 0.83"

update 8:35 p.m. - We still have showers and storms around the area. Nothing too strong, but it is great to see this soaking rain.


update 6:30 p.m. - Storms have remained below severe limits. Most organized storm is moving from near Brownfield now toward Tahoka. It'll likely bring a lot of small hail. Even though it's been fairly organized on radar, it is north of the front...not in a location conducive for tornado development.


update 5:53 p.m. - When the storm moved through Lubbock it brought a lot of small hail. Luckily, no radar indication or reports of large hail that could cause damage. A flood advisory runs until 6:30 p.m. Watch for street flooding. There's a stronger storm we're watching south of Brownfield moving into Terry County that has been a little better organized. 


update 4:46 p.m. - Storms are now moving into Lubbock with heavy rain, gusty wind and possibly some small hail. Also, the NWS received a report of a landspout tornado near Meadow around 4 p.m. A few more landspouts are possible south of Lubbock next few hours. These don't last long, are relatively weak, and rarely cause much concern.


posted 3:44 p.m. - THIS AFTERNOON: Showers and storms across New Mexico have moved into the western South Plains as of 3:30 p.m. This is a good sign. Coverage of showers and storms across our area will increase late this afternoon into this evening.

It's cool behind a front that moved through, now in the mid 50s with a gusty NE wind in Lubbock. This cool air is obviously limiting instability. Farther south, closer to I-20, there is some surface instability.

Despite it being cool, there will be enough shear to rotate storms. This means some hail will be possible out of the stronger storms. The greater severe risk is farther south of Lubbock.

TONIGHT: Low near 39, cloudy. Continued good setup for more showers and storms.

TOMORROW: 30% chance for a shower or storm during the day. Mostly cloudy, high near 62.

REST OF THE WEEK: The latest data has cooled off for Thursday with a gusty north wind that morning. Low 60s Thursday. Then it'll clear out and warm up, back here 80 and breezy on Saturday.

We're seeing a tremendous difference in forecast models on the forecast from Easter into early next week. One model has a front and cold air in place here, another model keeps the front away and it's much warmer. For now we're forecasting the 60s Sunday and Monday, but that could change significantly in the coming days.

7-day forecast

Check back here for updates through the afternoon. If any severe weather does pop up we'll also have the info you need on FOX34 and FOX34 News Now.
