There is the potential for heavy rain next few days. But it won't be all of our area. In fact, some communities could get a few inches of rain in one day while others get nothing.
There are flood watches and flash flood watches posted to the west of Lubbock, in green below. These run tonight into Tuesday evening.
While this won't be the only area that it rains, the watch area is most favored to pick up 1" to 3" of rain, with isolated totals even greater. Here is FOX34 VIPIR:
TONIGHT: Cloudy, low near 69. Chance for a shower or storm around Lubbock, rain and storms likely farther west and northwest. Wind S 12-22mph.
TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy, high in the lower 80s. Chance for a shower or storm around Lubbock and the central South Plains. Rain and storms are likely from Eastern New Mexico to Muleshoe and Dimmitt. Wind S 12-25mph.
NEXT FEW DAYS: Wednesday will be similar to tomorrow, with a chance for a shower or storm around Lubbock, rain likely farther west.
Then, a cold front enters the picture Thursday. It'll be another mechanism to generate rain and storms. It'll also cool things down, with the high Thursday only near 70.
The rain chance will slowly diminish late this week into the weekend. At this point the Tech game looks dry mid-day Saturday. We may get another push of cooler air first part of next week.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
