The clouds were thicker and stuck around longer today than expected which led to slightly cooler temperatures this afternoon. Below are some of the morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
We again have a chance for showers and thunderstorms this evening, but unlike yesterday, we have yet to see any showers across the South Plains this afternoon. This is making it a little harder to tell where we most likely would see some showers this evening, however there are two areas that we are currently monitoring. First is a loose grouping of showers across the Permian Basin which are slowly moving their way up to the northeast while building farther northwest. These showers will likely be the first showers to affect us this evening. Another complex of storms that we are watching is as of this writing slowly moving east across eastern New Mexico. These storms will likely move into our western counties later on this evening. With any storms we see tonight, the main concerns will be strong wind gusts as well as heavy rain leading to some flooding. You can keep an eye on the rain with our live streaming radar below.
A few showers could continue into early tomorrow morning, but all of the rain should end by sunrise at the latest. We will have partly cloudy conditions throughout the day tomorrow with another slight chance for storms in the afternoon, although tomorrows chance will be held across our western counties around the state line. High pressure will build back in at the end of the week clearing out our sky, with sunny and warm conditions expected into the middle of next week.
I hope you had a great day! I will have an update on the storms plus the rest of your forecast tonight on the News at Nine. Matt will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
