Saturday started off dry, but storms are in the forecast

UPDATE: Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 3 a.m.; Saturday started off dry, but storms are in the forecast

UPDATE: A Severe Thunderstorm *WATCH* is in effect until 3 a.m. for the Texas South Plains. Large hail and gusty winds are possible into the late evening and overnight hours.

 

--------

Scattered showers and thunderstorms were forecast today, however the chance for storms has shifted a little later into the evening, and they're expected to continue overnight.

As of right now, it doesn't look like the storms will interfere with Texas Tech Baseball.

The risk for severe weather was originally forecast to remain west of Lubbock on Saturday, but it looks like that risk has shifted farther east. This means that large hail and gusty winds are possible across the South Plains, but an isolated tornado can't be ruled out though.

TONIGHT: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, a few of which may be strong. Low of 65°, SW wind 5-15mph.

SUNDAY: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, a few of which may be strong. High of 83°, SSE wind 5-10mph.

Less rain coverage is expected the first half of the week, as storms are forecast to be more isolated. Temperatures remain in the low 80s, until we approach the weekend, where the forecast is actually looking dry for the time being.
