IMPRESSIVE RAIN: 0.97” of rain fell at the Lubbock airport yesterday, after nearly 2.5” the night before. This pushes the YTD total to 21.48”, which is 11.71” above the YTD average. The average precip total for an entire year here is 19.12”. Christopher Adams has a look at some of the flooding and a little bit of wind damage here.

THIS MORNING: It’s a cooler start here with the cold front now across parts of Central and North Texas. There are showers and storms running along the front from about Junction to Tulsa, slowly expanding east. The temperature is in the lower 60s here, even a few 50s across parts of the Panhandle.

TODAY: Clouds will slowly diminish through the day, partly to mostly cloudy this afternoon, high near 83. Wind S-SE 10-18mph. There won’t be much of a range in the temp across the area:

 
 
 


Late this afternoon into tonight there is a slight chance for storms. The chance is better across Eastern New Mexico. While the chance for rain is low, any storms that form will be able to produce brief heavy rainfall and some gusty wind.

NEXT FEW DAYS: It’ll slowly warm, with a mix of sun and clouds…upper 80s tomorrow and Friday. Both days also have a slight chance for storms.

WARMER DAYS: High pressure aloft will expand from the SE US toward Texas this weekend into next week. Our forecast is running a few degrees below what the computers show, since we’ve had so much rain. This should put us close to 90 this weekend, then mid 90s next Monday through Wednesday. The ridge should be somewhere close to us through next week, which will keep it warm and sunny.

 
 
 


Have a great day. Rudy will update this outlook later today.
