First Alert Weather: Wednesday’s severe storm threat
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Thunderstorms again are likely late today. Like yesterday, some will be severe. Some will produce heavy rainfall. Here’s our updated severe weather outlook for today and the rest of the work week.
I’ve posted rainfall and storm reports on my Steve Divine Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/stevedivinekcbd
After a mostly sunny start, the rest of the day will be mostly cloudy, breezy, but not as hot. Highs will be below average for most of the area. The exception is the southeast viewing area where highs will be near average for June 1.
Scattered thunderstorms, some severe, are expected late this afternoon and evening. While activity yesterday favored the northern KCBD viewing area, today is expected to favor the southern viewing area.
Much of the southwestern, central, and eastern viewing area are at a slight risk of severe weather. Like yesterday, be “Weather Aware” today and the remainder of the week. There is a chance of storms each day. Some may be severe.
The severe threat, once again, will increase late this afternoon and will be at its greatest this evening. Coverage will be spotty so not every location will receive rain or get hit by severe weather. Some spots will.
Storms, some possible severe, are likely off and on tomorrow and Friday. Storm and rain chances will diminish Saturday, though a few isolated storms may pop up in the late-afternoon heat.
Late yesterday and overnight heavy rain fell on parts of the KCBD viewing area. Lubbock had a sprinkle or two, but no measurable rain. Here are the measured totals via the TTU Mesonet (in inches):
2.76 South Plains 3ENE
1.14 Caprock Canyons
0.79 Roaring Springs
0.67 Vigo Park
