Plenty of wind this weekend, storms possible in region Monday

Posted: Updated:

We had plenty of wind again today. More of it is in store this weekend. In fact, tonight the wind won't drop off much, steady SW/W 12-25mph. Low near 42.

SATURDAY: Windy, sunny and cooler. The wind will probably be stronger from mid-morning to early afternoon. High near 67. Wind W/NW 20-32mph, some gusts topping 40mph. 

SUNDAY: Chilly start, mid 30s around Lubbock in the morning. A light freeze is possible to the northwest, including Muleshoe and Dimmitt. By the afternoon it'll become mostly sunny to partly cloudy, high near 71. Wind SW/S 10-20mph.

NEXT WEEK: Humidity will return to parts of the region Monday. But in typical fashion for this time of year, it probably won't be all of our area. With a dry line mixing east through the day, there is a chance for storms over the Rolling Plains, areas east of Lubbock. For Lubbock and areas on the Caprock it'll be a windy, dry day, high in the mid 70s.

Next week looks pretty mild, with front cooling it off a bit by late week.

Have a great weekend. Robert will have an update to the forecast posted here Saturday afternoon.
