Severe thunderstorm watch Lubbock, points south and east, until - FOX34 Lubbock

UPDATED: Severe storms moving across South Plains

Posted: Updated:

Here is current radar:



updated 9:56 p.m. - There is one remaining warning, for SE Garza and W Kent counties. This storm has also weakened a bit, though it still could have 1" to 1.5"-diameter hail right in the core. Not nearly as strong as what we saw an hour ago with this storm. Rest of the area it'll be quiet for tonight, next chance for storms late tomorrow afternoon.

updated 9:04 p.m. - We picked up torrential rainfall around Lubbock last couple hours, in some spots possibly more than two inches. There were also many reports of 1" hail, with some locations larger than golf ball-size hail.

Farther northeast, 3"-diameter hail was reported east of New Deal. That storm is now near Floydada, but not nearly as strong. Also, 2" to 2.75"-diameter hail was reported with a storm that moved from south Lubbock to near Slaton. It's now near Post, potential for golf ball-size hail.

updated 7:04 p.m. - A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for the city of Lubbock, Lubbock County and southern Hale County. A storm over SW Lubbock that's moving NE will bring some 1" hail. A few hail stones could be up to 2" diameter.

 Also, large hail has been reported with the storm near Tahoka, most recently golf ball-size hail. Of the two storms, that storm has the greater hail risk. 

updated 6:22 p.m. - The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for E Terry, Lynn counties until 7:15 p.m.

posted 3:23 p.m. -  The Storm Prediction Center has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for Lubbock and points south and east until 11 p.m. Monday. While coverage probably won't be all that high, storms that develop will have potential to produce strong wind and some hail.


There is the chance again for a few storms late tomorrow, and those may also become strong to severe. After that, we can't rule out an isolated storm each day. But the main theme will be hot and mostly sunny. 

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