There is a chill in the air as Lubbock welcomes the last day of Summer. Fall officially begins tomorrow at 4:04 a.m.
Today begins chilly, gusty, with widely scattered showers and thundershowers, so you have a chance of rain - as well as lightning and small hail. This afternoon will be a little cool, with some sunshine returning to the area. As I mentioned yesterday, the Panhandle South Plains Fair gets underway later today with its Preview Evening. The Fair opens officially tomorrow, and I still expect warm afternoons and comfortably cool evenings through the weekend.
