LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Last night the first wave of cooler air arrived on the South Plains, touching off a few isolated showers. Tonight the second wave, somewhat more vigorous, arrives. It too should touch off a few showers and perhaps a few thundershowers. The northeastern KCBD NewsChannel 11 viewing area, nearer the Childress area, could see some strong thunderstorms with heavy rain.

The first surge will cool us off slightly today, by around 10 to 12 degrees in the Lubbock vicinity. The second surge will drop temperatures a bit more, by another 7 to 9 degrees by tomorrow afternoon.

It will be on the chilly side as the Panhandle South Plains Fair gets underway tomorrow with its Preview Evening. Then warm afternoons and comfortably cool evenings will hold sway Friday through the weekend. Mild late September weather is expected next week, though there are a couple of features that if stronger, or faster, or farther south, or containing more moisture, could result in forecast changes.

There's more in my extended forecast on our Weather page at kcbd.com. To track the possible showers, try our First Alert Interactive Radar under the Weather tab near the top of the page. The controls on the left let you zoom into any area in the country, all the way down to street level.
