A cloudy start to the day today with moisture increasing into the region. Temperatures will climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s today. Winds remaining breezy from the south 15-20 mph. Clouds will break up just a bit by this afternoon leading to a mix of sunshine and clouds.

Rain chances begin around 5 pm as a dry line forms off to our west along the New Mexico/Texas state-line. This boundary will push to the east with storms developing along it. A Marginal (1/5) risk for severe storms for the northwestern portion of the viewing area exists as those storms fire up. Hail up to 1-inch in diameter is possible as well as wind gusts upwards of 60 mph. As storms move from west to east they will likely begin to die down in intensity with no threat for severe weather in Lubbock. Most of the area will remain dry with any location seeing at max a 20% chance for a shower/storm.
