Now Tropical Storm Isaias made landfall before midnight south of Wilmington, NC bringing wind speeds of 85mph, heavy rain, and isolated tornadoes. This is quickly pushing across the east coast to the northeast and will be in Canada by the early morning hours of Wednesday.
For the South Plains we had isolated storms near the state line overnight that didn't produce much in precipitation with Hobbs and Tatum, NM picking up 0.15". Today will be a little hotter with more mid and upper 90s, and a southerly wind 10-18mph.
TONIGHT: A chance for more isolated showers and storms firing up in northeastern New Mexico and pushing across the Amarillo area, then into the South Plains. Better chances for rain in our northern and western counties, then as storms look to die out maybe some light rain in the central area. Partly cloudy with the low near 70.
EXTENDED FORECAST: A ridge of high pressure moves a bit closer to the area, and this will continue a slight chance for isolated showers and storms late Wednesday into early Thursday. Then lower rain chances through the weekend, but temperatures continue to stay hot with upper 90s and 100s. Morning lows a little milder with lower to mid 70s.
Have a great Tuesday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
