Rain and storms Wednesday, clearing out this weekend

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: It's been cloudy, which has kept it cooler than yesterday...low to mid 70s around most of the area. Farther southeast around Snyder it's reached the mid 80s. 

A few light showers are moving from south to north. Much of this is really just a few sprinkles. At late afternoon one storm has developed north of Tulia. Some more sprinkles or rain will be possible this evening into tonight.

TONIGHT: Low near 67, cloudy, with some fog or drizzle. A few showers are possible by tomorrow morning.

WEDNESDAY: We're in a good setup for rain off-and-on through the day. A few storms will also be possible, which will bring some moderate downpours. The temperature won't move much through the day with the clouds, humidity and rain. High in the mid 70s, wind ESE 5-15mph.

NEXT FEW DAYS: High pressure aloft will build in closer from the east, which will lower the rain chance. Areas off the Caprock will probably see some sun, while it'll stay mostly cloudy around Lubbock. High again in the mid 70s.

Friday should warm back to the mid 80s with more sunshine. An isolated shower or storm is possible late Friday. A lingering shower is possible Saturday morning. The weather should be nice for the Komen Race for the Cure, upper 50s climbing through the 60s Saturday morning.

COOLER AIR: Longer-range models have consistently shown a stronger front arriving some time next week, with chilly, dry air behind it. The challenge has been the timing has changed from day to day. At this point we expect the high in the 60s Monday and Tuesday. If the front is slower then we could still see 80 on Monday. Tuesday morning will likely drop into the 40s.

7-day forecast

Hope you have a good rest of your day. Whitney will have a full update to the forecast online early tomorrow.
