Storms in area tonight, chance for more Friday

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

WELCOME RAIN: Steady showers and storms brought good rain over the western South Plains, with much less rain across the rest of the area. This was last night into this morning. Since then a few more showers and storms have developed well northeast of Lubbock, mainly over the Eastern Panhandle. All the rain this afternoon is moving SW to NE.

South Plains radar

Here are some top 24-hour rain totals through 3:30 p.m. on the Texas Tech Mesonet:

Muleshoe 2.59"
Friona 1.60"
Earth 1.14"
Morton 0.76"
Plains 0.67"
Dora 0.46"
Amherst 0.46"
Dimmitt 0.45"
Aiken 0.31"
Sundown 0.28"
Hart 0.22"
Olton 0.21"
Tatum 0.09"

Showers and storms will be most widespread over the Eastern Panhandle and across much of New Mexico rest of this afternoon into the evening.

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, low near 70. Slight chance for a shower or storm. Wind SE 6-12mph.

TOMORROW: Similar to today...hot and partly cloudy with a slight chance for a shower or storm. High near 94. Wind S/SE 5-15mph.

WEEKEND: Latest data has backed off by a degree or two for both days. It still looks sunny and hot, with mid 90s both afternoons. With high pressure aloft expanding into the region the rain chance turns lower.

NEXT WEEK: Lots of heat through mid-week, hottest day either Wednesday or Thursday. There will probably be storms in NE New Mexico and the northern Panhandle, but it looks dry here. 

Computers are showing an upper-level disturbance moving across the Plains mid-week. This could bring some rain to our region, but it's too far out for specifics. 

7-day forecast

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