Multiple days with the risk for severe storms

Multiple days with the risk for severe storms

LUBBOCK, Texas -

It is very muggy this morning as dew points have climbed to the mid to upper 60s. Almost like I live in Dallas again! Cloud cover might return with a few showers this morning.

TODAY: High today near 86 with a breezy southerly wind 15-25mph. Risk for severe storms to develop later in the afternoon around 3-5p along the dry line. Models are showing this dry line around the I-27 corridor at that time with locations to the east of it having the great risk for storms. The Storm Prediction Centers outlook shows a great risk for large hail, damaging wind, and even possible tornadoes for our northeastern counties. These storms will be traveling to the northeast.

TONIGHT: The dry line will push west towards the TX/NM border. There is a chance for more storms to develop including a line of them to push through our area. If this occurs it will likely continue into the early morning hours of Friday. Cloudy with the low near 64.

STORMY WEEKEND: We will be wedged in between a high pressures system and a couple low pressure systems. This will keep the moisture in place with storms developing along the dry line. The risk for severe storms stays in place for the area with flooding becoming an issue. With rounds of storms we could see 1-2" area wide with some locations higher amounts. If you plan on being outdoor around the area camping or at the lake make sure you do so with the risk for severe storms in mind. Being on the lake or under a tree is not safe, have a plan in place with this risk.

EXTENDED: Storms are expected to diminish into next week, but still a slight chance on Memorial Day. Highs will be climbing to the mid to upper 80s with stronger wind returning Monday and Tuesday.

Stay weather aware today! We will be keeping you updated on activity when it develops. Matt in with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
