John's Tuesday Evening First Alert Forecast

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -A strong low pressure system continues to spin across portions of New Mexico and Arizona late Tuesday.

A stationary frontal boundary was located just south of the Lubbock viewing area.

Both of these features will combine to bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms across West Texas.

There is a low risk for a few severe thunderstorms near Lamesa, Gail and Snyder late Tuesday and Tuesday night.

Hail and strong wind gusts are the primary risk if thunderstorms can develop in this area mainly south of Lubbock.

For the rest of the South Plains, dense fog will be possible overnight as humidity levels range from 95 to 100 percent most of the night.

At the moment, heaviest rainfall totals are expected across the southern half of the area towards Abilene, Big Spring and Midland.

Low temperatures fall into the lower and middle 40’s across most of the South Plains overnight.

Weather conditions should improve for northern areas Wednesday with a warming trend by the end of the week for all of the region.

Clouds are likely in the Lubbock area with highs in the lower to middle 60’s Wednesday. Winds become east at 5 to 15 mph during the day.

Look for fog and drizzle to start the day off Wednesday with a few showers and isolated thunderstorms possible through Wednesday night.

Sunshine is expected by Thursday as highs rebound into the 70’s and 80’s.
