Severe thunderstorm watch tonight, tropical moisture potentially next week

A Severe Thunderstorm **WATCH** is in effect until 11PM Tuesday for the counties below shaded in green.

Any thunderstorms will likely remain toward the north and east of the area. If we see any storms become severe, they will also likely remain north of Lubbock. Lubbock is not in the clear for showers though. Overnight, expect a low temperature of 72 with evening storms, and perhaps a few lingering after midnight well toward the north. Winds will be from the SSE 10-15.

Wednesday looks drier and not as hot! Still hot, but not near 100 as highs will likely only reach 93°. Some computer models forecast a few showers Wednesday afternoon, but we're keeping mostly sunny skies in the forecast for now. Winds will be out of the SSE 10-15mph.

Expect to be a little cooler from here as temperatures drop by the weekend. By next week, we could see some more much needed rainfall as current forecast models bring some tropical moisture into the Texas coast. We could benefit from this moisture in the way of scattered showers much of next week.

As a result, expect wetter than average conditions for much of the southern United States. We will likely be even a little cooler than average. Keep in mind that average is 90° for the afternoons here in Lubbock for this time of year, so we're talking about 80s maybe during the afternoons next week.

Overall, some cooler temperatures are in the forecast for the next two weeks, and perhaps some much needed the rain the wee after.

Stay vigilant this evening and follow me on social media for the fastest updates concerning any severe weather tonight.
