Cloud cover and a northeast wind has increased from a cold front that moved through the area.
This front will provide a significant cool down for our area. Highs will range from the upper 70s to our northern counties to 80s and low 90s south. Lubbock's high near 85 with the breezy northeast wind backing to 10-15mph through the afternoon. There might be areas of drizzle/ light rain with the mostly cloudy sky, then some storms for our southern counties possible where the cold front stalls out later this afternoon. Current radar below:
TONIGHT: A chance for showers and storms across our area with some heavy rainfall and strong wind gusts. This looks to be the best chance for wide spread rain we have had in a while with some locations could receive over an inch in rain. Lesser chance for the heavier rain to our north and northwestern counties. Temperatures will drop to the lower to mid 60s to start the morning.
WEDNESDAY: The chance for rain might continue through morning with the mostly cloudy sky. Then a slight chance for some isolated storms and partly sunny with highs in the 80s.
REST OF WEEK: Ridge of high pressure settles in and drys us out with highs climbing to the mid 90s.
EXTENDED: Another cold front enters the area and may provide another slight chance for showers and storms through the weekend. This doesn't look as promising as tonight's chances, but still better than nothing. Highs also looking to stay nice in the lower 90s and 80s into next week.
Have a great Tuesday and enjoy the cool down! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
