Weekend weather warms up; rain chances decrease


A few showers and thunderstorms are possible across the South Plains this evening. The best chance of thunderstorms will be south of Lubbock, but a few rain showers may occur at any given location across our viewing area through midnight. Severe weather is not expected at this time, but some small hail is possible in the stronger storms that develop towards Snyder, Gail, Lamesa and Seminole.

Partly sunny skies return to West Texas Saturday. A stray shower or two cannot be completely ruled out late Saturday. Highs warm into the lower to middle 70s. East-northeast winds average 10 to 15 mph.

Fair skies are expected Saturday night. It should remain comfortably cool with lows in the lower 50s.

Sunday looks sunny and warmer with highs in the lower 80s. Southerly winds become gusty at 15 to 25 mph Sunday afternoon. Rain chances increase again Tuesday and Wednesday as a dryline sets up across the region.    

The last time we had this much rain was Feb 25th, the day of the big West Texas blizzard where we received .34 inches of precipitation. Look at the attached map to see the latest precipitation amounts in your area.
