Low visibility Wednesday evening, possible severe weather


Thunderstorms are developing along and west of the Texas/New Mexico state line tonight. Additional development is possible overnight tonight across the South Plains and Low Rolling Plains.

Some of the stronger storms could produce lightning, small hail and gusty winds. An isolated severe thunderstorm threat exists mainly to the south and east of Lubbock later tonight. Storm chances are highest between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. across the South Plains area. Storms may impact the Western South Plains between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. with the line of storms across New Mexico.

In areas where storms are not occurring, dense fog will continue to create travel issues across the South Plains. Visibilities less than a mile are possible across most of the area through 2:00 a.m.

Once the storm system passes tonight, we can expect clearing skies and drier air Thursday. Winds may gust up to 50 mph Thursday creating areas of blowing dust during the day.
