Storms expected later today, hotter days ahead

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Showers to our southeastern counties to start of this first day of Fall. This activity is pushing to the northeast and providing a few locations some rain. Current radar below:
South Plains Radar

TODAY: Partly to mostly cloudy with less clouds to our northern counties. Highs will be nice in the lower to mid 80s with a light southeast wind. The front that cleared the precipitation yesterday will lift north across our area. This will help to lift the moisture and provide us with more scattered storms with areas of heavy rainfall possible.

TONIGHT: After the sunsets this rain chance will dwindle down with a mostly cloudy sky. Some areas of dense fog still can't be ruled out with moisture still in place. Lows dropping to the 60s with a few upper 50s to our northwestern counties.

TUESDAY: Temperatures continue to climb to the mid and upper 80s. A slight chance for isolated storms with a partly cloudy sky.

EXTENDED: There is a upper level low pressure system digging across the southwestern US that will push east across our area late in the week. Even with this system things are looking drier, though some isolated showers and storms will be possible at times. Temperatures will be on the rise with models bringing us back into the low 90s to end the work week. We might have another chance for storms going into the weekend, thankfully the Tech game is in Oklahoma.

Have a great first day of Fall! Matt will have the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
