THIS AFTERNOON: There are a few showers and storms to the northeast of Lubbock. These aren't moving much and, at least in a small area, producing some pretty good downpours. Here is FOX34 VIPIR:
Meanwhile we're also watching out west, across New Mexico. Storms there will head east and might make it into our area later tonight. There also could be a few more storms that develop in our area next few hours.
All this is to say the storm chance at any one location is low, but a few storms will be around.
TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy, low near 72. Wind S/SE 10-15mph. There is a slight chance for a shower or storm all the way through sunrise. Like this morning, there could be a few showers, though the coverage will be fairly low.
TOMORROW: Nearly a repeat of today. High near 94, wind S/SE 7-15mph. Slight chance for a shower or storm tomorrow afternoon through tomorrow night.
NEXT FEW DAYS: We expect a few more storms in the area Wednesday, high near 93. Some of the computers are showing better coverage of storms Wednesday than today or tomorrow.
Then the storm chance will trend lower, although some nighttime showers/storms are possible, with the coverage staying low. The high temp will run close to or just above the average high of 93 through this week. There will be some humidity in place.
Longer-range guidance is showing it getting a little warmer this weekend into next week. But no signs of very hot weather. While rain is usually iffy, we can often see strong heat waves pretty far out. The stretch of 100-degree days we just wrapped up was evident a few weeks out, with high confidence in that outlook. Thankfully we aren't seeing any signs of very hot weather; but the overall theme is high temps above the seasonal average heading into the first part of August.
For areas downstate, a wave moving in from the Gulf will probably bring some rain late this week into the weekend.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
