Cool tonight, more rain likely this weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: We've had a few lingering showers this afternoon, but nothing like the heavy rain this morning and past few days. These showers are on the back side of the storm system. The leading edge is where big storms stretch from eastern parts of the state up to the Midwest. In eastern Colorado there's even some snow falling today.

Most of Lubbock picked up around an inch of rain over the past 24 hours, few spots a little more, few spots a little less.

Looking back over the past few days, here are some of the top totals on the Texas Tech Mesonet:

New Home 5.02"
Lake Alan Henry 3.78"
Paducah 3.74"
Reese Center 3.68"
Welch 3.67"
Brownfield 3.58"
Fluvanna 3.44"
Roaring Springs 3.33"
Jayton 3.22"
Earth 3.12"

TONIGHT: A few lingering showers this evening, then some clear. Provided we do see clearing, we're forecasting a low of 42 in Lubbock. Some upper 30s farther northwest. Fog is possible in the morning. Wind 5-10mph. Here is the current temperature:

local temperature

WEDNESDAY: Sunny, high near 68. Wind NW becoming S 5-12mph.

NEXT STORM CHANCE: Hurricane Sergio in the Pacific will weaken as it moves over the Baja. The remnants of that tropical system are projected to move somewhere into our region, boosting the amount of humidity available. There will also be some upper-level support out west and possibly a front moving into our area.

We'll begin with a slight chance for showers or storms late Thursday. The rain and storm chance is a little higher late Friday. Then rain appears likely Saturday.

It's doesn't appear we have the risk for severe storms like we did last weekend into early this week. But heavy rain will again be possible.

It'll also trend cooler, high in the mid 60s Saturday then only 50s Sunday. A front moving through some time Sunday will kick up the north wind and make it even cooler. We expect upper 30s Monday morning in the city, with a freeze possible farther north, in the western Panhandle.

7-day forecast

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