Much cooler and wetter days ahead - FOX34 Lubbock

Much cooler and wetter days ahead

Storms are starting to bubble up again this evening. No severe weather is expected, but a strong storm isn't impossible. Not expecting as much rainfall as yesterday, granted most of the rainfall was west of Lubbock County.

TONIGHT: Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms in the evening, and lingering after midnight. Lows will be near 66° with SSE winds 5-15 mph.

LABOR DAY: A better chance of showers and thunderstorms across the South Plains. High temperatures are expected to only reach 83° with SSE winds 5-10 mph. If you're outside smoking some brisket, be sure to pay attention to the weather. If you hear thunder, you're close enough to be struck by lightning!

While a disturbance moves through early in the week, some cooler air follows midweek allowing temperatures to drop again, as well as maintaining the chance of showers and thunderstorms. Much of the Lone Star State is expected to receive rainfall, especially toward the Gulf Coast. Some enhanced tropical moisture will put a damper on their Labor Day, potentially dropping over 6" of rainfall. Closer to home, 1-2" of rain are expected, with potentially locally higher amounts, especially east of the area. Temperatures remain slight below average in the afternoon, with some places struggling to reach the 80s midweek. By the weekend it looks like we'll be dry in time for some Raiderland football, and it doesn't look too hot either!
