LUBBOCK, Texas -

Clouds increased with more moisture moving in overnight. Temperatures haven't dropped like the last couple of days.

TODAY: We had a few showers and embedded thunderstorms to our southern counties this morning. This activity has been light and will continue to be light through the rest of this morning.

Intensity in storms and coverage will increase for the rest of the day. Some strong maybe lower severe storms possible with higher wind gusts and smaller hail. Heavy rainfall likely with the amount of moisture we have in place. Most of our area getting around 3/4" to 1.5" of rain over the next 36 hours. High near 67.

THURSDAY: A strong front moves though the area through the early morning hours. We will likely see our warmest temperatures for the day before the front. Then temperatures will struggle to be in the 40s, with 30s expected for much of the afternoon. Showers and storms will likely develop along this front into the early morning. Then lighter precipitation with on and off showers for much of the afternoon. The northerly wind will be strong 15-25mph and this will make if feel much colder too.

EXTENDED: Rain comes to an end later Thursday, but cloud cover will stick around Friday keeping highs in the 50s. Freezing temperatures to start Friday morning, if precipitation is on the roads some slick spots possible. Temperatures will warm for this weekend back to the 60s, then plummet after another front pushes through later Sunday. Highs again barely climbing out of the 30s Monday with a mostly cloudy sky. Some light precipitation possible, just not in the same amounts we are going to get in the next 36 hours.

Have a great Thursday and don't forget the umbrella! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
