LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A brief break in the rain for some of the south plains Wednesday afternoon. However, heavier rain will gradually move back over all of the region later this evening, overnight and into tomorrow.

In fact, rain chances will be high throughout the day Thursday and extend to mid-Friday for Lubbock and into the afternoon hours for the eastern south plains.

The rainfall amounts from the next round of rain will vary from about a quarter of an inch to possibly 2 inches for areas along and east of the caprock by Friday afternoon.

As the clouds return so will the chilly temps as lows for Lubbock stay in the mid- 40s Thursday and Friday morning with afternoon temps in the upper 40s tomorrow, but warmer on Friday. If the clouds clear soon enough, we might see a high of 60 to 62 degrees Friday afternoon.
