Warmer next few days, better rain chance next week

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

RAINFALL: A sloooooow-moving batch of showers and storms finally fell apart just before getting to Lubbock mid-day today. At times it seemed like it was at the pace of someone walking. It did produce some heavy rain in the northwestern part of our area. Here are some rain totals on the Texas Tech Mesonet:

Dimmitt 1.43”
Hart 1.10”
Happy 0.61”
Muleshoe 0.60”
Friona 0.48”
Tulia 0.34”
Amherst 0.24”
Plainview 0.15”
Olton 0.10”

For the rest of today we can’t rule out a stray shower or storm popping up, but most of our area should stay dry. With gradual clearing the temperature will climb into the upper 80s to lower 90s.

TONIGHT: Low near 68, partly cloudy. Wind S 5-10mph.

NEXT FEW DAYS: We’ll probably miss the rain, though an isolated shower or storm is possible late both days. It’ll be warmer, near the average high of 92, wind S 10-15mph.

RAIN CHANCE RETURNS: It’ll probably be slightly warmer Saturday, ahead of a front moving across the region. There’s a slight chance for a shower or storm late Saturday. The better rain chance runs from Sunday into Monday, and still a decent chance for more rain Tuesday into Wednesday. 

Like we’ve seen past few weeks, where it rains it’ll be heavy. Much of our region could pick up another 1” to 2” of rain next week. It’ll cool off a bit, back in the 80s for the high Sunday through Wednesday.

7-day forecast

Have a great rest of your day. Whitney will have the next full forecast update here early tomorrow.
