Hotter weather ahead in Lubbock

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

TODAY: Clouds and some rain kept the temperature down this morning. Since then, plenty of sun has warmed it into the 80s and lower 90s across the area.

Farther north in the Panhandle there were some good rain totals of 1/2" to 1", but across the southern Panhandle and South Plains it's been much less. Here are some 24-hour rain totals from the Texas Tech Mesonet:

Tulia 0.16"
Paducah 0.10"
Roaring Springs 0.09"
Northfield 0.09"
Aiken 0.05"
Silverton 0.05"
Turkey 0.04"

TONIGHT: Mostly clear, low 68. Wind NE 5-10mph. A few storms might make it to Clovis and Dimmitt late tonight, but those will probably fall apart before they make it into much of our area. 

THURSDAY: We'll probably miss the rain, lots of sun and hot. High 94, wind E/SE 5-12mph. Once again storms are possible late at night NW of Lubbock, but not much of a chance.

HOTTER DAYS: An upper-level ridge will expand across the region and the air will get drier late this week into the weekend. Friday through Sunday each afternoon should be up around 100, lots of sun. The wind will kick up a bit more Friday, S/SW 12-25mph.

NEXT WEEK: Heat levels come down some by mid-week. The pattern should support some storms moving from the higher terrain of Colorado and New Mexico to Texas. But this far out it's uncertain whether any of that will make it here or will be up in the Panhandle. For now we're keeping the forecast dry.

7-day forecast

COLLEGE WORLD SERIES: Omaha's weather has been anything but dry. A big area of rain crawled across eastern Nebraska this morning, finally allowing Tech and Arkansas to play this afternoon. 

It's not the rain chance we've had for the first half of the week, but there's still a pretty good chance for some rain tomorrow, high only in the upper 60s. The rain chance is a little lower Friday and Saturday, turning slightly warmer.

CWS forecast

Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
