We are wrapping up a rainy and cool day that felt more like March than July. The Lubbock International Airport recorded 3.31 inches from yesterday afternoon to this morning which puts us at 21.39 inches for the year. Keep in mind that the annual average rainfall for Lubbock is 19.12 inches, which we have already bested just half way through this year. Click here

for a look at all the rainfall totals broken down from the past 96 hours. A lot of that rain came with the cold front that moved through overnight and that front also set us up with some record cool temperatures today. The coolest maximum temperature for this date was 78 degrees set back in 1958, which we were several degrees below this afternoon. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
All of the heavy rain exited the region early this afternoon with just a few light showers possible this evening. Some areas of drizzle and fog will also likely develop overnight going into tomorrow morning. You can keep an eye on the potential rain with our live streaming radar below.
The clouds will thin out some tomorrow afternoon which will allow a bit of sunshine to peak through, but we will still have mostly cloudy conditions. There is a slight chance for a few isolated showers and thunderstorms both tomorrow and on Thursday, with the best chance being late in the afternoon and evening. This will not be anything like the widespread heavy rain we saw last night and this morning.
Temperatures will gradually get warmer going into the weekend as a high pressure system builds in and clears out our sky. Quiet weather will be the trend for the weekend and first half of next week with temperatures eventually warming back into the mid 90s.
I hope you had a great day and enjoyed the cooler temperatures! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
