Scattered storms next few days, highs in the low 80s this weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Had a few storms in the area yesterday to bring a few locations some rainfall. Here are some of the totals from Tech Mesonet:
Amherst 0.57"
Plains 0.33"
Anton 0.24
Olton 0.09"

It will be another hot day with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s and partly cloudy. Storms are expected to start towards the TX/NM border and push easterly later this afternoon. Unlike the last few days where they stayed west, storms will push into the central South Plains and then Rolling Plains. Parts of the area will stay dry where as others may see half an inch or more rain with stronger storms. Some hail and high wind gusts can't be ruled out with a low chance for the storms to become severe. 

Current radar below:

TONIGHT: Still a chance for showers and storms that might last into the early A.M. especially to our western counties. Partly cloudy with the low nearing 66.

THROUGH THE WEEKEND: The chance for scattered storms continues through early Sunday morning, then diminishes Sunday afternoon for much of the area. Possible heavy rainfall at times will cause the concern for local flooding. Although some areas will see rain a few locations might not get much at all. Also, the risk for some strong and severe storms with hail and strong wind gusts possible.

NEXT WEEK: Long range models bring another low pressure system into the Pacific Northwest this weekend. This looks to dig southward increasing our moisture and bringing more rain chances into next week.

Have a great Thursday! Matt with the latest updates tonight on the News at Nine.
