We have already picked up a quarter to half of an inch for most of our area as of 8am. Current radar below:
TODAY: Light on and off showers through the early afternoon hours, then storms develop in New Mexico and push into our area. Unstable air and warmer temperatures may lead to some strong and severe storms with heavy downpours and smaller severe hail. Possible risk for an isolated tornado in eastern New Mexico and to our south closer to the I-20 corridor. Temperatures not moving much through the day with the high near 52, easterly wind a little breezy at times 10-20mph.
TONIGHT: Low near 44, the chance for showers and storms continues until the early AM. Then drier air brings a light southwest wind and clears rain and clouds from west to east.
SATURDAY: Sunshine and mild temperatures with highs in the upper 60s and 70s.
SUNDAY: Another front moves in the early morning hours, cloud cover quickly increases with showers and storms develop with another good coverage. Highs drop again to the 50s.
SPRING BREAK WEEK: Unfortunately for the kids the chance for showers and storms continue each day as another upper level low sets up to our west. Temperatures returning to the 60s and lower 70s with a cloudy sky.
Have a great Friday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
