Overnight showers and storms moved out of eastern New Mexico into our area. This brought some pockets of heavy rainfall for parts of the area. Here are some of the rainfall totals from the Tech Mesonet:
Reese Center 0.49"
Lubbock Airport 0.08"
Near Tech 0.07"
TODAY: The low pressure system that has stay to our west the last couple of days will move closer to the area. This will provide the chance for more showers and storms later in the afternoon. Any storms that develop will bring some heavy rainfall causing areas of flooding. High near 83.
TONIGHT: Likely to have another line of storms pushing from New Mexico and moving into our area. Some models are bringing this in a little earlier than the storms early this morning. Again flooding and stronger wind gusts will be the main threats, some smaller sized hail possible.
THURSDAY: The low will move across our area providing a spotty showers and storms. The chance for this will be diminishing through the day from west to east. High near 80.
EXTENDED: More sunshine and warmer temperatures which is what farmers need right now. Hottest day Saturday with the high near 96... I'm sweating already! A cold front will push through our area some time Sunday. Models aren't agreeing on timing at the moment, but this will bring some strong wind and cooler temperatures to start next week. There is also another slight chance for some showers and storms to start the week as well.
Have a great Wednesday! Matt in with the latest forecast updated and coverage of storms tonight on the News at Nine.
