Scattered storms continue this evening and return this weekend

Scattered thunderstorms are popping up all across the South Plains this afternoon. They'll likely dissipate before midnight, but expect some more Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The threat for any of these storms to become severe is fairly low.

Tonight, we'll drop back into the 60s with some partly cloudy skies. Winds will blow ENE 5-15mph. Highs struggle to reach the 90s again on Saturday, with Lubbock's forecast high at 89. Expect more scattered thunderstorms and E winds 5-10. The threat for severe weather is also very low.

We're getting a lot of tropical moisture from the easterly winds, and I believe we'll keep some clouds with us Monday and Tuesday as well. A storm is possible but I'm keeping us dry most of next week for the time being. The average high temperature each day in July is 93° so it doesn't look like we'll stray too far from that next week.

I'll be back tomorrow to keep an eye on the storms. While no severe weather is likely, keep the lightning in mind if you have plans outdoors!
