THIS AFTERNOON: It's warmed into the 70s north of Lubbock and 80s over the southern half of the area. The air is pretty dry west of Lubbock, with some humidity and instability to the northeast.
The Storm Prediction Center has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for parts of the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles, which goes through 10 p.m. There is better support for storms well north of Lubbock. It looks like the cap will hold in our area, though we can't rule out an isolated storm somewhere north of Lubbock. Here is FOX34 VIPIR:
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and breezy, wind SE/SW 10-20mph. An isolated storm is possible northeast of Lubbock. Some low clouds and fog may develop by sunrise, though it's not as certain as it looked for this morning. The wind may stay up enough to limit fog development. Fog appears more likely north, in the Panhandle.
TOMORROW: Partly cloudy and windy, high near 77. Wind W/NW 16-28mph.
NEXT FEW DAYS: Back in the mid 80s and breezy Thursday before a few weak fronts will move through. Saturday will likely be the cooler of the next few days, though it's only dropping back to the low 70s.
It'll turn a bit warmer first part of next week. There may be some humidity returning middle of next week. That's not all that's needed for rain and storms, but it's at least something to watch. Until then, it looks like low-level humidity will stay away, leading to several sunny afternoons.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update here tomorrow morning.
