UPDATED: Some storms tonight, much colder weather ahead

Posted: Updated:

updated 10:19 p.m. - A few storms produced hail over the southern South Plains into the Rolling Plains. At this point the storms have weakened below severe limits. Still a few more showers or storms are possible through mid-morning, before it turns dry and windy on the Caprock Saturday afternoon.

 

updated 9:07 p.m. - We've got a few storms across the southern South Plains, moving north and about 30-40mph. A severe warning goes until 9:30 for Gaines and far NW Dawson counties; and until 9:45p for Garza and SW Kent counties. These storms have potential for 1" to 1.75"-diameter hail and strong wind. This includes a storm moving toward Post.

Not everyone will get a severe storm tonight. Coverage will remain pretty limited. But if you do have one of these storms approach, expect some hail and strong wind.

posted 5:32 p.m. - THIS AFTERNOON: We've got a lot of clouds in place, along with a few light showers over the western South Plains. Farther west, a few thunderstorms have developed in Eastern New Mexico. 

THIS EVENING: Showers and storms will spread each. Coverage won't be great. We'll continue a chance for a shower or thunderstorm across our area tonight through mid-morning Saturday. The chance for a storm is a little bit higher south of Lubbock. Low near 52.

SATURDAY: After clouds and some showers/storms in the area early, it'll become dry and windy. A dry line will likely mix just east of Lubbock, leading to dry and windy conditions for most of our area. High near 80, wind W by the afternoon 20-28mph.

East of the dry line, off of the Caprock, a few storms are possible in the afternoon.

EASTER SUNDAY: Mostly sunny, high near 63. That temperature will probably be reached early afternoon. We expect a strong cold front to slide across the area. Early in the day the wind will be out of W 20-28mph; behind the front it'll be NW/N 25-35mph with higher gusts.

The temperature will fall through Sunday afternoon and it'll turn much colder through the night.

COLD DAYS: We expect a freeze for most of the area Monday morning, with it struggling to get to near 50 by the afternoon. As an upper-level disturbance moves across the area there is a slight chance for showers Monday night into Tuesday morning. It'll be cold enough for a little snow to mix in with rain.

Tuesday afternoon it should get back to the low to mid 50s. The average high/low by early next week is 75 and 45, showing just how chilly it'll be for this time of year.

Have a great weekend and stay safe. Robert will have a full update to the forecast posted here Saturday afternoon.
