(KCBD) -

Severe storms pounded the South Plains with high winds, some heavy rain and large hail Tuesday night.

Winds were clocked as high as 85 mph in Lockney with many other communities recording winds from 55-65 mph. Numerous reports of wind damage ranging from downed power lines, damaged trees to 18 wheelers flipped on their sides.

High proved to be an issue for several communities with Crosbyton the hardest hit with widespread damage in the community. Damage included shattered windows and home windows broken due to hail. In some areas of town the hail was almost as large as grapefruit and pounded through the roofs of homes and cars.

Isolated storms possible Wednesday evening, some severe over the South Plains.

Best potential will be in the areas east/southeast of Lubbock and northern areas.

Thursday will bring a better chance of scattered storms across the South Plains, some with large hail and high winds. Heat and humidity will combine to bring the storm chances back to  the region, especially the central and eastern areas of the South Plains.

Little change in night time temps as they remain in the 60s. However, it will be getting hotter each afternoon with daytime temps in the low to mid 90s tomorrow through Friday.

It does appear that rain chances will drop late Friday and Saturday and will increase on Sunday.
