Severe weather possible this weekend - FOX34 Lubbock

Severe weather possible this weekend

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: The dry line has mixed well east of Lubbock, leading to a sunny and hot day in Lubbock and for areas on the Caprock.There is humidity mid-afternoon Snyder to Guthrie, where a storm is possible. At this point storms are developing farther east and will move east.

TONIGHT: Humidity will return to the area, low near 62. Wind S/SE 5-15mph.

SATURDAY: Hot and breezy, high near 92. Thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon and evening.

The dry line will likely set up somewhere west of Lubbock during the afternoon. To its east there will be good humidity, with the dew point in the 60s. There should be strong instability combined with some shear to support storms producing large hail and strong wind. Not everyone will get a severe storm, but it's a possibility to be aware of.

SUNDAY: Another chance for showers and storms, possibly some severe. And the chance will probably linger into Sunday night. Again, we'll watch for the potential for some storms to become severe.

NEXT WEEK: Pretty typical for Memorial Day, some showers and storms are possible. It should also be a little cooler with clouds hanging around, high in the 70s.

A few different computer models have consistently shown an upper low meandering across Texas. This makes it tricky for specifics on the weather, because we don't know exactly where it will be. Lows drifting from east to west aren't too common, so it lowers confidence in any one forecast solution. That said, generally speaking, it looks good for Texas to get rain. For our area, we'll show a slight chance for a shower or storm through much of the week, with clouds keeping the temperature down a bit.

Have a great rest of your day. Robert will have a full forecast update here late tomorrow.
