Hot Thursday, much cooler Friday

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: It's a nice, sunny day across the region. Of course, nice would be lots of rain. While we don't see that any time soon, things are looking a little better for at least some rain over the next week.

TONIGHT: Low near 57. Steady SE wind will bring more humidity back to the area. There will probably be some low clouds developing in the morning.

TOMORROW: High near 95, mostly sunny and windy. Wind S/W, ramping up to 20-30mph by the afternoon. The dry line will mix east of Lubbock.

While it'll be hot and dry in Lubbock, a few storms are possible over the Rolling Plains, including Paducah, Roaring Springs and Spur. While the chance for storms isn't great, if they develop, they could become severe with large hail.

LOOKING AHEAD: Another cold front will move through tomorrow night, with the north wind kicking up 20-30mph early Friday. It'll be a much cooler day, likely only reaching the upper 60s Friday afternoon.

The temperature will climb some through the weekend, with a lot of sun.

By early next week we'll likely have more humidity in place. And longer-range guidance is showing an upper low over the Pacific moving into the NW United States. That will set us up with northwesterly flow aloft, which can bring some weak disturbances overhead to lead to thunderstorm development. The dry line may become active, as well.

Right now there isn't a good setup for rain and storms on any one day, but the overall pattern suggests we'll see at least a few storms in the area and possibly strong storms, since it will be mid-May. Check back for updates as we get closer.

Bobby will have the next update posted here tomorrow morning. Have a great rest of your day.
