Wet briskets and dry pig skins

We're already seeing some storms this morning in eastern New Mexico. Expect to see scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day not only today, but most of the week ahead.

While Monday and Tuesday present the best chance for rain, it looks like most of the week will bring a chance of at least some rain. An upper level low toward our northwest is aggravating our atmosphere and pumping moisture into the south plains. This moisture is fueling our rain chances this week.

TODAY: Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will only reach about 83°. Expect SSE winds 10-15 mph. If you plan on smoking that brisket, keep the weather in mind! While no "severe" weather is expected, if you're close enough to hear thunder, you're close enough to get struck by lightning. As they say, "when thunder roars, head indoors."

TONIGHT: Some storms lingering after midnight under mostly cloudy skies and SE winds 5-10mph.

Coastal Texas could see a lot of rainfall due to the tropical system headed toward the Gulf Coast. While a tropical system isn't forecast to make landfall in our state, it will bring some enhanced moisture across the coast. Closer to home, 1-2" of rain are expected, with potentially locally higher amounts, especially east of the area. Temperatures remain slight below average each 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!
