Rainy Friday, cool this weekend and next week

Posted: Updated:

An approaching upper-level storm system will bring a good chance for rain across our area. First, tonight it'll stay cloudy and relatively mild, low near 41. A few light showers are possible through morning. Here is FOX34 VIPIR:

FRIDAY: Cloudy, likely fog in the morning. The temperature should only reach the low 50s in the afternoon. We expect rain across much of the area, though it shouldn't rain at any one location all day. At times it may not be much more than drizzle. Wind SE 12-22mph.

By Friday evening there should be enough lift, as the storm system gets closer, for a few thunderstorms to spread from Eastern New Mexico onto the South Plains. The risk for severe weather is fairly low. But this is when heavier downpours can be expected. Common rain totals of 1/4" to 1/2" are likely, but where the heavier downpours move, totals could go above 3/4". That's heavy for December.

SATURDAY: Showers will be exiting early in the morning. It'll clear out and become wind, W wind at times over 25mph. High in the mid 50s.

LOOKING AHEAD: Sunday will be cooler and sunny, only reaching the mid 40s. It'll be cool right through New Year's Day. The next storm system may bring some showers Wednesday or Thursday, though it's not a great chance at this point.

Have a great rest of your week. Bobby will have a full update posted here early in the morning.
