Storms this evening, decent chance for more this weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

SCATTERED STORMS: We've had some good downpours around our area today. General motion of storms has been from north to south. But because the upper-level wind is so weak, outflow boundaries have helped influence motion. So we've had some moving SW, some moving SE.

There have few a few severe warnings issued today. The main risk is wind gusts of 60mph. Even then, we don't quite have the dynamics for storms to become severe and stay severe for hours. There could be some small hail with storms, as well.

Overall, the severe risk is fairly low. Some storms will also produce localized flooding. Something we'll gladly deal with.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with showers and storms around, low in the mid 60s. Wind NE 5-10mph.

SATURDAY: Mostly cloudy and cool, high near 82. It'll be warmer north of Lubbock, cooler to the southeast.

There's a decent chance for showers and storms throughout the day. It won't rain all day at any one location, but we expect another round of some off-and-on rain in the area.

SUNDAY: Mostly to partly cloudy, high near 82. It's a slightly lower chance for showers and storms.

NEXT WEEK: There will be a gradual warming trend with the rain chance going down. By the second half of the week we'll be back in northwesterly flow aloft, which brings the chance for some storms late at night, moving in from New Mexico and Colorado.

7-day forecast

Have a great weekend and I hope you get some good rain. Look for more updates here as well as on FOX34.
