Isolated storms possible today, some severe storms Friday

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Impressive rain totals for parts of the area, while others stayed dry. Here are the top totals from the Tech Mesonet:
O'Donnell 2.08"
Fluvanna 1.74"
Welch 1.69"
Tahoka 1.33"
Gail 1.09"
Levelland 1.00"
Lubbock Airport 0.88"
Earth 0.85"
Abernathy 0.84"
New Home 0.78"
Lake Alan Henry 0.43"

Also these storms produced small hail and high wind gusts recorded in the 60 to 70mph range which caused some damage.

TODAY: Hot and muggy with the high near 96 and south-southeast wind 10-18mph. Dryline moves further east setting up near the I-27 corridor where some isolated storms may develop. Not expecting the same coverage of rain, but a few locations may pick up a brief downpour. High wind gusts will also be possible. Current radar below:
South Plains Radar

TONIGHT: Any storms that do develop will diminish before midnight, then partly cloudy. A few sprinkles may be possible in the morning with lows staying in the upper 60s and low 70s.

FRIDAY: Cold front will stall in the northern Panhandle with the dryline returning near the TX/NM border. With the moisture staying in place another good shot for storms developing west then pushing across parts of the area. Our atmosphere looks to support some larger hail sizes to 1 to 2 inches and high wind gusts again. Some showers and storms may continue into early Saturday.

WEEKEND: Rain chances quickly diminish with a few isolated storms possible east of Lubbock Saturday afternoon. Saturday at 4:43P begins the Summer Solstice and no better way to celebrate with hotter days leading into next week. Father's day highs will be closing to triple digit heat!

NEXT WEEK: Near or above 100 degrees expected though Tuesday, then a cold front drops highs by the end of the week. There may be some chances for rain too later in the week, but a little far out for anything promising.

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