Isolated storms this afternoon, better coverage into next week

LUBBOCK, Texas -

TODAY: A few things going on in our area with a weak front pushing through the northern Panhandle this morning and a plume of moisture moving in from far west Texas. This front will stall across our northern counties bringing a chance for some isolated storms to the south of it this afternoon. Also, hotter temperatures ahead of the front with highs in the lower to mid 90s. Overall lots of sunshine with some afternoon isolated storms like yesterday.

TONIGHT: Showers and storms will start to diminish after the sunset then mostly clear overnight, mild start with lows in the 60s again.

FRIDAY: The disturbance in the southwestern US that has been bringing them heavy rain will push across our region. This will bring a slight chance for showers and storms later in the day and might cause some more football games to be delayed. High near 91 with a west/southwest wind 10-15mph.

WEEKEND: The next upper level low will change the jet stream and streaming Pacific moisture back into our area. This will proved a better chance for possible widespread showers and storms starting later Saturday. Still a little uncertainty on where the heavier rainfall may end up. For now it does look like the western half of our area into eastern New Mexico has the better chances. Highs will be dropping to near average by Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: This system is a slow mover and will continue the chance for possible heavy rain through much of next week. High temperatures will likely drop to the upper 70s and lower 80s area wide with the rain and cloud cover.

Have a great Thursday! Stay cool in this heat and Matt will have the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
