Warmer and, possibly, wetter

Steve's Monday Evening First Alert Forecast

LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Temperatures will increase over the next few days, but so will storm chances.

Rain is unlikely through the evening, but a shower or non-severe thundershower or two is possible overnight. Any rainfall, however, is expected to be sparse. Temperatures will get a little cool, dropping into the 50s. That’s a little below average for this time in June, just 12 days away from the Summer Solstice, the official beginning of Summer 2019.

Tuesday will be partly cloudy and breezy, with a much warmer afternoon. Highs will be in the 80s and winds will range from about 10 to about 20 mph. During the evening there will be a slight chance of storms, mainly late. Spotty storms are somewhat more likely Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Occasional storms will be possible Wednesday into Friday, and more seasonable heat is likely at week's end. Friday is Flag Day and Sunday is Fathers' Day.
