A few storms possible late tonight, quieter next few days

A few storms possible late tonight, quieter next few days

Posted:

Whether you're enjoying the day off or working, we get to do what we do because many have died defending our country. We are so fortunate. It's easy to overlook that so many, for generations, have died for our freedom. And their loved ones deal with the burden.

 

It's a quieter day with the dry line east of Lubbock this afternoon. It was remarkable that a storm produced tornadoes for a few hours yesterday, starting near Dora, New Mexico, then tornado reports near the state line, close to Muleshoe, north of Earth, near Sunnyside and northwest of Hart. The NWS should have survey data on those tornadoes tomorrow.

The NWS released information on Saturday's tornadoes. Keep in mind these are rated based on damage. The only one that produced measurable damage was on the north side of Plainview, rated EF-2.

TONIGHT: Humidity will return back west. There is a slight chance a few storms will develop. The cap may hold and nothing develops. But if storms develop, they could become severe with strong wind and hail.

TOMORROW: Sunny and breezy, high 85. Wind W/SW 12-22mph. The dry line will be well east of Lubbock.

NEXT FEW DAYS: A front will move through the area Wednesday, bringing a chance for a few showers or storms. Cooler with a north wind, high 76.

Then Thursday will start a daily chance for showers and storms. There isn't any one day where rain/storms are likely at this point. And there isn't any one day where severe weather is likely. But based on the overall pattern and time of year, we may see some severe storms late this week into the weekend. This part of the outlook will get clearer in the coming days.

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