Severe thunderstorms pass through Crosby, Dickens on Thursday night
UPDATE: Crosby and Dickens saw some thunderstorms on Thursday night, a preview of what we expect on Friday.
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Less heat, more wind in the forecast for Friday with severe weather potential in the afternoon.
A quiet and mild night with lows in the 50s and 60s. Winds will shift to the south bringing in some moisture overnight, mostly clear tonight but some clouds developing early tomorrow morning.
Windy conditions return tomorrow afternoon. A Wind Advisory is in effect for the entire South Plains with sustained wind between 25-35 mph, gusts upwards of 50 mph possible. A bit cooler tomorrow that today but still expecting highs in the 80s to lower 90s.
Severe weather threat is in place for tomorrow afternoon. We will be watching for the development of storms along a dry line in the late afternoon timeframe. Storms will quickly become strong to severe if/when they do pop up. Most of the area will remain storm-free but again storms have the potential to blow up quickly and will have the ingredients to become severe. Our main threats include large hail, damaging wind gusts, and a tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
Unfortunately, this will not be the type of weather system to bring drought-kicking rain. In fact, most of the area will remain dry throughout the day Friday. Winds will remain breezy overnight Friday into Saturday. A slim chance for a stray shower or two early Saturday morning, otherwise sunny and dry for the weekend. A high of 82 on Saturday, even cooler for Sunday.
