Weekend storm outlook
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Torrential rain fell in the KCBD viewing area overnight, but not a drop was recorded in some areas. I’ve posted rain totals below. Rain chances through the weekend will be slight but will pick up early next week.
This afternoon will be partly cloudy, slightly breezy, humid, and very warm to hot. Storms today are likely to be quite isolated, limiting the chance of rain at any given location. With any storm, however, there may be heavy rainfall. Highs will range from near 90 degrees to the mid-90s.
Tonight a few stray storms are possible, mainly near the NM state line.
Tomorrow and Sunday will be near repeats. Spotty storms are likely in the area with partly cloudy skies and highs ranging from near 90 degrees to the mid-90s.
Monday and Tuesday our storm and rain chances are anticipated to increase. Heavy rain is likely to accompany some of the activity. High temperatures may run 10 to 15 degrees below average.
