Ending the week dry and hot, more storms into the weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A lot of damage from hail across Lubbock and other parts of the South Plains last night. Hail sizes 1-2 inches were common with 2-3 inches reported... that was baseballs falling! Here are some of the rain reports from the Tech Mesonet:
Fluvanna 0.70"
Silverton 0.55"
Caprock Canyon SP 0.46"
Lubbock airport and near Tech 0.42"
Plainview 0.42"
Post 0.38"
Snyder 0.31"
Tulia 0.21"
Abernathy 0.20"

TODAY: Much quieter and sunny with temperatures in the lower to mid 90s. The dry line pushes east and may have storms develop across our eastern counties. Again large hail and high wind gusts will be possible. Drier air behind the dryline with wind speeds increasing 12-20mph from the southwest. This mornings update from Storm Prediction Center and current radar below:

TONIGHT: Mostly clear and nice with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s.

FRIDAY: Another sunny and hot day with highs climbing a degree or two more.

EXTENDED: More rain with possible severe storms return this weekend and into next week. Dryline moving back in could help the development of storms late Saturday, then a cold front late Sunday early Monday will bring a better chance. Highs will drop to the 70s Memorial Day and looks to stay below the average through midweek. A digging upper level low will move across our region and looks to continue the chance for rain maybe through the later half of next week. Not expecting it to rain constantly, but on and off showers and storms possible.

Have a great Thursday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
