Chance for storms later today, not as hot rest of the week

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Another hot afternoon in store for our area with highs in the 90s and low 100s. Difference from yesterday will be a cold front will push in the region helping to lift the moist air up. This will provide a little bit better chance for some isolated thunderstorms starting later this afternoon. Not expecting widespread rainfall, but some heavy rainfall may lead to flooding where it occurs.

The outlook from the Storm Prediction Center shows a chance for these storms to become strong to severe. Risk include hail and damaging wind gusts.

TONIGHT: The storm chances start to diminish after midnight with some clouds in place. Lows will drop to the upper 60s with a little breeze from the front.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny with a lower chance for rain, though an isolated storm can't be ruled out. Highs will drop to the upper 80s and low 90s for a "cooler" afternoon.

EXTENDED: Temperatures really not moving much with highs in the low to mid 90s through the weekend with lots of sunshine. We might have another chance for rain into next week with temperatures in the upper 90s again.

Have a great Wednesday! Matt with the latest forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
