Storms possible Friday, cooler this weekend

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: The dry line has mixed east, meaning dry air has built across most of our area with the dew point down into the teens to 30s. It's been a sunny day, with a little more high clouds late this afternoon.

TONIGHT: Low near 64, partly cloudy. Humidity will return by morning, wind SW/S 5-15mph.

TOMORROW: There is a chance for a few storms to develop late afternoon. The dry line will likely be somewhere in the middle of our area by the afternoon. Also, there will be a front edging in from the north. But the upper-level support won't be all that great for storms. To the south of the front and east of the dry line, some big storms could develop.

This means a storm is possible around Lubbock, but it's more likely for storms to the east and southeast, including Paducah, Lake Alan Henry and Snyder. Storms would probably develop between 3 and 5 p.m., then spread east through the evening.

Where storms develop tomorrow, the main risks will be hail and strong wind.

WEEKEND: It'll be a little cooler Saturday and Sunday, near the seasonal average. We can't rule out an isolated storm, but the storm chance is low.

NEXT WEEK: Humidity will build back into the region, but it doesn't look like there will be much lift for this to turn into rain/storms. Right now we're keeping the forecast dry until a slight chance for storms Wednesday.

Have a great rest of the day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
