We picked up some pretty good rain from the thunderstorms this morning. There were a few hail reports up to 1" diameter, including in Lubbock, though much of it was smaller. There was heavy rain, for some locations. Rainfall ranged from 0.06" near Wolfforth to 1/2" near Texas Tech. Heaviest rain fell at Plainview, the Texas Tech Mesonet site has recorded 2.63" over the past 24 hours.

THIS EVENING: There are still more more showers and storms over SE New Mexico and the SW South Plains. These developed where it's warmer with more sun. As the storms move NE they will first encounter a few boundaries remaining from the storms earlier today, which may initially help the storms strengthen, before weakening some as they move farther northeast.

TONIGHT: Cloudy, likely with some fog. Low near 50. Wind SW 5-10mph.

TOMORROW: Warmer, partly cloudy. High near 74. Wind SW/S 10-20mph.

Thunderstorms are likely again tomorrow. A few may develop mid-day. They are more likely late afternoon into Wednesday night. The ingredients are in place for some storms to turn severe. The risk is slightly greater Lubbock and points east to Wichita Falls and south to Midland and Abilene. Primary risks are large hail and damaging wind, though an isolated tornado is possible. The wind risk will be a little bit higher by Wednesday evening.

LOOKING AHEAD: It'll turn sunny, drier and very wind Thursday. High temp near 65, west wind 20-35mph, gusts over 50mph. Then it'll be quite a bit cooler Friday and Saturday.

 

Have a good rest of your day. We'll have updates on the storms through the evening on FOX34, FOX34 NewsNow and right here.
