Still a slight possibility for storms today, windy next couple of days

Cloudy start to the morning with mild temperatures and a lot of moisture in the air. The dry line is off in New Mexico with dew points in the teens and 20s on the west side of it.

TODAY: High near 88, models continue to show this dry line to push east through most of our area. The wind will increase behind the dry line 20-30mph from the southwest. Chance for storms to develop east of that dry line this afternoon, staying dry west of it.

There are still a few things that could happen for today for more storms to develop than what models are showing. The main one being this dry line could stay a little further west. This happened a couple of weeks ago and we had severe storms that afternoon. If storms do develop they will quickly become severe.

TONIGHT: Storms will likely develop in the Midland/Odessa area and might push into our south/southeastern counties. Timing on this activity will start later tonight and continue into the early parts of Saturday morning. These storms will continue the severe risk including large hail, damaging wind, and a low but still a risk of a tornado. Partly cloudy and breezy with the low near 59.

Here is the latest Storm Prediction Centers Outlook where severe storms may develop this afternoon-overnight:

WEEKEND: A upper level storm system will continue to push east taking the moisture and storm chances with it. The wind will stay strong Saturday changing more westerly 20-30mph. Highs will drop some for the area, but warming back to the mid 80s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: Our next storm system will directly behind this upper level low. Models are showing a better chance for wide spread showers and storms. Again this will have the potential to be strong and severe starting late Sunday through Monday. This could change through the weekend so stay updated with Robert for the latest.

Have a great Friday! Matt with the latest updates and coverage if storms fire up tonight on the News at Nine.
