RAINY DAY: By mid-afternoon the steady rain has moved east of our area. Some drizzle lingers, along with the clouds and cold air. The drizzle should gradually diminish into this evening.
Here are some of the top 24-hour rain totals in our area from the Texas Tech Mesonet through 2:30 p.m.:
Denver City 1.41"
Lake Alan Henry 0.88"
Around Lubbock County it was another soaking rain, with the heavier rain to the southwest:
Reese Center 0.46"
Near Texas Tech 0.44"
TOMORROW: We'll start with clouds and fog in the morning, becoming sunny by the afternoon. High 70, wind W/N 5-12mph. Sunrise 8:00, sunset 7:02.
NEXT FEW DAYS: A pretty quiet pattern will set up, with more sun. In fact, parts of our area may get into the 80s on Saturday.
The first part of next week will turn a little cooler. Average high this time of year is in the lower 70s. We won't stray too far from that mark first half of the week. Computers are showing an upper-level disturbance passing across the region that may brings some showers and cooler air late next week. But there isn't much consistency yet in the guidance. For now we'll keep the forecast dry, but will probably add a rain chance in the coming days.
TEXAS TECH FORECAST: Chance for some rain tomorrow and Friday in Ames. Then a better chance for rain Saturday night. But, for now, weather should cooperate for the Tech game. Kickoff in the upper 40s, end of the game in the mid 50s.
WORLD SERIES: A few showers are possible through this afternoon in Boston. Rain should be done by game time with a clearing sky and a gusty NW wind. It'll be even colder than game 1, first pitch in the lower 40s, wind chill in the 30s.
Of course it'll be a dramatic turnaround in Los Angeles. Game 3 will start sunny, temp in the mid 80s.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
