Storm system renews rain chances for Easter Sunday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The first round of storms, associated with an area of low pressure, moved through the KCBD viewing area on Saturday, bringing beneficial rainfall, gusty winds, and small hail.

In a few locations, large amounts of small hail accumulated on roadways and created areas of high water.

The storm system responsible for the unsettled weather is still spread across New Mexico and will slowly move eastward; passing over our region midday Sunday. As it moves overhead, another round of showers and scattered thunderstorms is expected.

The most likely time to see inclement weather on Easter Sunday will fall between noon and 6 p.m. A few storms, similar to Saturday, could become strong and produce wind gusts to 60 MPH and small hail. Considering the amount of moisture in the atmosphere, isolated pockets of heavy rain and localized street flooding are also possible.

Unsettled weather should push east of our area by Monday. However, a dryline will develop over west Texas shortly thereafter, renewing a chance of isolated afternoon thunderstorms.
