SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH for our southeastern counties including Dawson, Borden, Scurry, and Kent counties until 10a. Storms are tracking from the Midland/Odessa area to the northeast around 50mph. Round after round of heavy rainfall likely to cause some areas of flooding.
TODAY: Models show this activity continuing through this morning pushing northeast, but staying east of Lubbock. Partly cloudy with an isolated chance for a shower or storm this afternoon. Cool temperatures with highs in the 70s with a light northeast wind 10-15mph.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear sky with lows dipping back to the 50s.
THURSDAY: Highs will be a little warmer nearing 80 with more sunshine.
MORE RAIN: A ridge of high pressure will move into the region, this will push the gulf moisture west into New Mexico. Likely to have storms developing off the mountains and pushing into the South Plains. Severe storms can't be ruled out but this activity looks to be more of a rain set up. Of course with the last rain set up flooding will quickly become an issue. Temperatures will start to warm to the lower to mid 80s through the weekend.
Have a great Wednesday! Robert will have your latest forecast update tonight on the News at Nine.
