Storms end overnight, windy and warm Wednesday

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue across the Rolling Plains tonight before ending early Wednesday morning. You can keep an eye on the storms with the live stream of our Vipir radar by clicking here or looking at the still image below.


The west wind will really pick up on Wednesday, which will bring in drier air and clear us out. We will start off the morning in the mid 50s and top out in the mid 80s with a sustained west wind around 20-30 mph and gusts up to 40 mph. Similar conditions can be expected on Thursday with temperatures a few degrees warmer.

A cold front will move through on Friday, but we should still warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s ahead of the front. As the front moves through we will have a decent chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. That chance will continue into Saturday. Temperatures will be a little cooler on Saturday, with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s. The cool temperatures will be short lived, as we warm back into the 80s by the beginning of next week. There will also be another chance for storms to start off next week.


I hope you had a great day! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Bobby will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning. -Rudy

    Angie's List Tip: Deck dos and don'ts

    May is National Deck Safety Month, so do your family a favor and get yours in shape for summer. That means a good safety check as well as basic maintenance.  Most wood decks are made of pressure-treated pine or red cedar. Make it a seasonal habit to check for weak spots, signs of wood rot and instability in posts and framework. Don’t let the surface suffer, either. “You should reseal your deck every two to three years with either a clear or semi-transparent stain...
