Severe storms likely this afternoon, hotter on Father's Day

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A good set up for storms this afternoon and our atmosphere could support severe hail 1 to 2 inches and producing high wind gusts. Isolated storms will develop around 2-4P along the dryline in our western counties. This looks to spread eastward and becoming a line of storms then clearing east before midnight. Current radar below:

TODAY: High temperatures will range from the 80s to a few 100s. Hotter to our southwest with the dry air on the west side of the dryline. South-southeast wind will be breezy during the afternoon 12-22mph, again highs wind speeds with possible blowing dust with storms.

TONIGHT: Another round of overnight and early morning storms may move through the northern Panhandle and Oklahoma. This might make it into our northeastern counties bringing more rain and possible higher wind gusts. Low nearing 66 with wind speeds dropping after midnight.

WEEKEND: A few isolated storms may develop in our area Saturday, not expecting the same coverage as today. Wind speeds drop to 5-15mph with highs in the lower to mid 90s. A ridge of high pressure builds with more sunshine and much hotter temperatures for Father's Day nearing 100.

NEXT WEEK: We continue these hot temperatures Monday then a nice cool down for Tuesday though Thursday. This cool down also looks to bring more rain in our area which is never a bad thing around here.

Have a great Friday and stay weather aware. Matt with the updates on storms through today and the next look at the forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
