Chance improves for rain, severe weather Monday


A weak cold front moving into the South Plains Monday morning will drop our high temperatures a bit this afternoon. Moisture will begin to pool over the area, and rain chances will return.

At first there will be just a slight chance for late this afternoon and evening. Later there will be a high probability of storms late tomorrow and tomorrow night.

Storms will be forming in an environment somewhat favorable for severe weather. The Storm Prediction Center indicates there is a slight risk of severe weather Monday from the Lubbock area north, and tomorrow across the entire KCBD viewing area. The main threats will be large hail and strong gusts. 

Monday will be hot, but not as hot as Sunday. Sunday's high in Lubbock was 103°, two degrees shy of the record set in 1917. High temperatures today will be mostly 90s, and tomorrow mostly 80s.
