Severe storms likely today, more storms possible late Friday

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

SEVERE WEATHER: Active weather expected as a dryline moves out of New Mexico and sets up in our area. We will be watching where this dryline ends up because that is where storms will initiate. Likely just west of Lubbock with isolated storms, then as they push east they becoming scattered. Storm Prediction Center outlook this morning highlights the eastern counties with a greater risk for hail over 1", damaging wind gusts, and an isolated tornado. This may change into the afternoon if the dryline ends up further west or east. This activity will clear east of our area into the nighttime hours.

TODAY: A warmer afternoon with the high near 89, southerly wind on the breezy side 12-22mph.

TONIGHT: Becoming mostly clear with the low near 61 and south wind 10-20mph.

REST OF THE WEEK: Highs stay warmer in the lower 90s. A disturbance with a front will bring another chance for showers and storms. Models are still working out on these details but rain will be possible late Friday and maybe Saturday.

EXTENDED: Temperatures drop to the lower and mid 80s this weekend. Clouds look to stay in place with that upper level disturbance if it stay in our region.

Stay weather aware again today with to potential severe storms. Matt will keep you up-to-date with coverage this afternoon and tonight on the News at Nine.
