Rainy Friday, more rain possible next week

Posted: Updated:

We have a good setup for rain over the next day or so. Here is FOX34 VIPIR:

Showers are moving from SW to NE. Through Thursday evening most locations only received some sprinkles, with a few communities south of Lubbock having measured a few hundredths of an inch of rain.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with some showers. A few thunderstorms are possible. Low near 49.

FRIDAY: Off-and-on showers through the day. When it's not raining it'll be cloudy, cool and somewhat breezy. High in the 50s. It'll be quite a bit warmer to the southwest, with the high likely reaching the mid 60s at Hobbs and Seminole.

We'll likely see some thunderstorms develop in Eastern New Mexico by late afternoon, spreading east onto the South Plains during the evening. The chance for rain and storms here runs all the way through early Saturday morning. Common rain totals of around 1/2" can be expected, though a few locations may pick up 1" to 2".

The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted an area roughly from Lubbock west to Roswell and south to Midland and Fort Stockton with the potential for severe storms Friday into early Saturday. But if it only reaches the low 50s in Lubbock, it'll probably be too cool. It's a little more likely for some severe storms to the southwest, including Hobbs and Seminole. And when we mention severe weather, we're talking about 1"-diameter hail.

LOOKING AHEAD: It'll clear out Saturday afternoon, with a steady west wind. High near 70. Then we have another chance for rain and storms Sunday and Monday afternoons, lower chance Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Have a great rest of the day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
