Warm next few days, better rain chance by the weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

MILD DAY: This morning's low in Lubbock was 65 with the coolest readings in our area of 58 to 59 for the northwestern South Plains. The average low in Lubbock this time of year is 53, dropping to 52 tomorrow. With a lot of humidity in place, we won't get near that mark any time soon.

It's warmed nicely this afternoon, mid 80s around Lubbock, upper 80s farther east off of the Caprock. There are a few isolated showers that've popped up west, near the state line. These are tiny, slowly moving to the NE. They'll likely diminish early this evening.

TONIGHT: Warm for early October, low near 69. Wind S/SW 10-18mph. Low clouds are again expected in the morning.

TOMORROW: High near 90, mostly sunny through the afternoon. Wind SW/S 10-18mph. Average high this time of year is 79.

NEXT FEW DAYS: It'll be warm again Thursday, with a less-warm trend by the weekend. But there still aren't any signs of colder air making it down this way. In fact, there may be a few fronts that cool down the Panhandle while the South Plains stays a bit warmer.

Today there's lots of rain across the Desert Southwest, some of it is from the remnants of Rosa. There will be a few upper-level disturbances sliding across the West/Southwest. Eventually there will be a big trough over the Rockies by this weekend. All this means is we have a few rounds of lift moving our way to help generate showers. But on no day is it a guarantee it'll rain. 

For now we'll mention an isolated shower or storm is possible tomorrow. Then there's a slight chance for showers and storms Thursday and Friday. It goes up to about a 30-40 percent chance Saturday through Monday. Some heavy rain will be possible in a few locations in our area through early next week.

It won't exactly be open weather for harvest. Hopefully it won't get too wet this weekend into next week.

We still don't see any signs of real cold weather here, though next week should be a little bit cooler than this week.

7-day forecast

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