Chance for more rain tonight, rest of week

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

MORE RAIN: We've had showers and storms across the area this afternoon. These are slow-movers bringing some heavy rain and lightning. Unfortunately, not everyone will get the rain. But it is fairly decent coverage. 

South Plains radar

Showers and storms will continue through this evening with a decent chance for some more through the early morning hours. Low tonight near 65. Wind N/NE 5-15mph. Sunrise Thursday 7:25.

NEXT FEW DAYS: The most widespread rain will shift farther downstate, but there's still support for more scattered storms here through the day Thursday. Where it's not raining it'll be mostly cloudy and fairly cool, high near 78. Wind NE/E 5-15mph.

Friday's rain chance is a little bit lower, but we'll probably see at least a few more showers and storms in the area. Again the high only in the upper 70s.

WEEKEND: The air will start to dry out on Saturday. There might be enough humidity and weak support for an isolated shower or storm, but it's not much of a chance. It'll be pretty nice for the Tech game, high in the lower 80s. If the clouds don't clear then it'll stay in the 70s.

Sunday morning may drop to the upper 50s, with drier air in place. Sunday afternoon will climb to the mid 80s with plenty of sun.

NEXT WEEK: Warmer and sunny with a lower chance for rain.

7-day forecast

TROPICS: Tropical storm Gordon made landfall last night and has made good progress inland, now as a tropical depression over parts of Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi.

Hurricane Florence is way out in the Atlantic. The forecast track next five days keeps in SE of Bermuda. It's too far out to know if it'll curve north or be a threat to the East Coast.

Florence forecast

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