We had a few light showers across parts of our area yesterday. For today a chance for isolated showers to our west, then storms later in the afternoon and evening hours. Some of these storms could be strong to severe with some hail and high wind gusts. Cloud cover will increase and stays in place across the western half of our area. Highs will range from the mid to upper 60s with low 70s east.
Current Radar below:
TONIGHT: A better chance for more wide spread showers and storms in parts of our area. Some models keep this better chance to our southern counties and in the central South Plains. This looks to clear the area early in the morning, low near 52.
WEEKEND: Temperatures will warm nearing 80 Saturday with a southwest wind becoming gusty. Easter Sunday a strong cold front moves in our region and depending on the timing may lead us with a range of high temperatures. Wind speeds continue to climb 25-35mph and temperatures drop quickly behind the front.
NEXT WEEK: If you have planted any spring flowers or plants, you will need to cover them or bring them inside as we deal with a late season freeze. Cloudy day Monday with the high nearing 50. There looks to be a disturbance moving out of New Mexico into the Panhandle late Monday. This will bring a chance for precipitation and with freezing temperatures likely a wintry mixture or just snow. Models still working some details like how far south will this push, but parts of our area could get snow on the ground before clearing early Tuesday. We look to warm later in the week, but another cold front possible as the European model hints.
Have a Good Friday and Happy Easter weekend! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
