Storm chance returns this weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: It's warmed into the low to mid 90s across the South Plains beneath a mainly sunny sky. To our west there are scattered showers and storms across New Mexico.


A wide view above shows the remnants of what was Hurricane Bud, now a post-tropical depression. It's helping pull moisture up across Mexico to the SW United States. Bud will continue north next few days, bringing with it lots of humidity. It'll mainly be focused to our west, but will at least bring a little bit more humidity.

Farther south is tropical storm Carlotta. It'll continue north into southern Mexico tonight into tomorrow. And there's a tropical disturbance entering the Gulf. While it's not expected to become an organized tropical system, it will be a rain-maker to the Texas coast late this weekend into next week.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy, low near 72. Wind S/SE 10-20mph.

SATURDAY: Warm, but not as hot as the past few days. High near 90, partly cloudy and breezy, wind S/SE 12-22mph. Showers and storms will be widespread in New Mexico through the day. We have a chance for some storms late Saturday into early Sunday. The better chance is west of Lubbock.

SUNDAY: Better chance for showers and storms, high in the upper 80s. This weekend we'll have a lot of humidity in the air, which could lead to some much

NEXT WEEK: The pattern doesn't change much from day to day. We have at least a slight chance for a storm each afternoon and evening. It also won't be as hot, high in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

7-day forecast

Have a great weekend. Robert will have a full update to the forecast here Saturday afternoon.
