TODAY: Like yesterday with the mostly cloudy sky, breezy south wind, and highs in the 80s. It will be cooler where heavy rain is likely with highs in the 70s. The chance for showers and some storms will push into central South Plains later today and this evening. This activity is looking to be more isolated but still able to produce a heavy down pours. The higher rain amounts will stay west and in the northern panhandle.

TONIGHT: Low near 68, mostly cloudy with some spotty showers and a few storms, better chances west of I-27. Likely to have another round of heavy rainfall to our northwestern counties and in New Mexico to start the morning.

REST OF WEEK: A wet forecast continue to our west and north where the better chance for heavy rainfall will stay. A cold front will push into the Panhandle Thursday, models now are stalling this front out to the north. Showers and storms will be possible in our area but more isolated to scattered instead of widespread. Also, models have backed of on cooling us down to the 60s and 70s Thursday, but keeping us in the 70s and 80s.

EXTENDED: Things look to dry out for the weekend with a couple of front pushing in the area. The strongest will be late Sunday and early Monday with some showers possible. Nothing looks promising with rain, but temperatures look to drop to the upper 60s and lower 70s for a nice cool down.

Have a great Tuesday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
