Severe storms possible this afternoon, very windy Thursday

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Dense fog possible again for parts of our are this morning. For the rest of us some sunshine expected for the first half of the day. High near 74, southerly wind will be a light breeze 10-20mph. The chance for showers and storms will increase into the afternoon with severe storms possible. Large hail over an inch, damaging wind, heavy downpours, and a possible tornado can't be ruled out with the ingredients we have. The image below if from the Storm Prediction Center showing a greater risk for these types of storms to the Rolling Plains, but still a possibility for this on the Caprock.

TONIGHT: Severe weather will continue pushing east with showers and storms continuing in the early morning AM, then diminishes from west to east. Low near 48 with southwesterly wind 10-18mph.

THURSDAY: The upper level system will quickly push across the 4-corners region and into the mid-west. This will push a weak front leave us with a very strong wind from the west through the day to 22-35mph and gusts in the 40-50mph range.

EXTENDED: We move into Spring Friday and things turn colder with a front pushing in early Friday. Highs dropping in the upper 40s and low 50s through Saturday. For those who are green-thumbs and planted some Spring flowers we will have some freezing temperatures both mornings. Then warming back to near 70 Sunday with more clouds, 70s look to continue into next week with a little stronger wind.

Have a great Wednesday! Matt will keep you updated this afternoon as storms fire up so make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter @matternst34.
