THIS AFTERNOON: It's hot with some clouds after a nice start with rain in parts of the area. It really just teased Lubbock, making it right to the doorstep. Areas north of Lubbock picked up some good 1/4" to 1/2" rain with more than an inch measured at Dimmitt.
TONIGHT: There could be a few showers or storms that make it to the area, though it's more likely the rain will end before it exits the Panhandle. Low 68.
TOMORROW: Mostly sunny and warm, high near 93. Wind S/SE 10-15mph. Average high this time of year is 91.
EXTENDED FORECAST: Humidity levels will increase this weekend and we have a slight chance for storms beginning Saturday night into Sunday. The chance for storms looks slightly better first half of next week. We're just not convinced everything will be in place for rain. But if it does pan out, we'll have enough moisture to work with to lead to some good downpours. And it won't be as hot, upper 80s to lower 90s first part of next week.
Part of the forecast hinges on what Bud will do. That was a hurricane, now a tropical storm in the Eastern Pacific. It'll send some moisture our way this weekend into next week. But it looks like the good setup for rain will be across New Mexico.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update here early tomorrow.
