Chance for storms next few days, cooler next week

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS EVENING: We're watching the potential for a few isolated storms. Though coverage will be limited, if anything does either develop here or move into the area from the north, there's the potential for some hail and strong wind. As of 5:45 p.m. Wednesday there are a few storms in the Eastern Panhandle and a few near I-20 in the Permian Basin. Storm moving is from NW to SE.

West Texas radar

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy, low near 63. E/SE wind 10-15mph.

THURSDAY: Hotter, with the high near 92, wind SE 12-20mph. We expect some storms to go up in the afternoon and evening. And, once again, we should have enough instability and shear in place for some large hail and strong wind. Like we've seen all week, not everyone will get a storm. The moisture will be in place across most of our area, leading to the chance for most of the South Plains.

FRIDAY: The dry line will probably mix east of Lubbock, limiting the storm chance to areas east of Lubbock. High near 96.

WEEKEND: We may see a few showers or storms by late Saturday, but for now we're keeping the forecast dry. It'll heat up to the low to mid 90s Saturday. Then on Sunday a front will move through, dropping the high to near 80.

There's a pretty good chance for rain and storms Sunday. 

NEXT WEEK: We'll hold on to at least a slight chance for showers and storms through at least mid-week. The good news is parts of our area could get good, soaking showers first half of next week. At least the way it looks right now, this is definitely good news.

7-day forecast

Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast tomorrow morning.
