Rain chances continue across the viewing area

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

As a storm system slowly approaches Texas from the west, a chance of showers and thunderstorms will remain in the forecast through Sunday evening.

Initially, most of the shower activity across the KCBD viewing area only produced isolated reports of measurable rainfall. Most only reported sprinkles and gusty winds underneath showers. However, moisture will continue to increase across west Texas tonight, yielding a better chance of rain Sunday.

Rain should be focused off of the Caprock and across the Rolling Plains on Sunday morning. However, isolated showers could affect your morning plans as far west as the state line.

As the day wears on, day-time heating, combined with moisture and lift from a passing storm system, will produce isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms across the entire area.

Thunderstorms on Sunday could produce occasional lightning, wind gusts over 40 mph and very small hail. However, thunderstorms are not expected to reach severe thresholds - winds greater than 58 mph or hail at least an inch in diameter - but could become briefly strong.

However, rainfall coverage will only average 30 to 40 percent at any giving time, meaning that many will only see rain for a brief portion of the day, while others may not see any rain at all. If you have outdoor plans, it would be best not to cancel them. Plan around these 'splash-and-dash' showers. Remember, when thunder roars, go indoors.

Clouds, cool temperatures and showers will slowly diminish through early Monday morning.
