We had some good rain for parts of the area where others including here in the city didn't get as much. We all dealt with strong wind with gusts in the 60-70mph range! Here are some of the top rainfall totals as of 7:30am from the Tech Mesonet:
New Home 2.07"
Lake Alan Henry 0.81"
Near Tech 0.24"
Lubbock airport 0.17"
We continued some light showers and embedded storms this morning. Here is the current radar:
TODAY: Things look to quiet down for the rest of today with clouds breaking apart for some sunshine. Models do hint some isolated showers with a few embedded thunderstorms might be possible, but better rain chances to our west in New Mexico. Temperatures will be much nicer with highs in the lower to mid 80s. Wind speeds stay light 8-15mph from the northeast.
TONIGHT: Activity that develops in the higher terrain of New Mexico looks to push back into our area this evening and tonight. Some of this might be severe again with some high wind speeds and even some hail early in the evening. Better chances look to be west of I-27 and into New Mexico. Lows again start in the 60s area wide with a light southeast wind.
WEDNESDAY: A few isolated showers and storms may develop in our area, but things look to dry up for most of us. Temperatures stay nice as temperatures only warm a few degrees in the upper 80s.
GOING TO THE WEEKEND: There looks to be some more storms possible late in the evening late Friday and possibility into late Saturday. This is a slight chance with some disagreement in models. Temperatures climb to the lower 90s with wind speeds increasing for breezy days. Wind speeds continue to climb to the 15-25mph range for the weekend with highs in the mid and upper 90s to start next week.
Have a great Tuesday! Matt with the updated coverage on storms tonight and the latest forecast for the News at Nine.
