LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - Drier air is returning to West Texas. This changing weather pattern will result in warm afternoons and keep our rain chances low. That is, bouncing back to the dominate weather pattern this summer.
After his morning’s chill, the drier air and mostly sunny sky this afternoon will lead to quite a warm up. Lubbock’s high yesterday was just 73°. Thirteen degrees below average for the date.
Temperatures this afternoon will peak near average for mid-September, right around the mid- to upper 80s. A few clouds will linger over the area. And it will be a little breezy.
Tonight will be cool under a mostly fair sky. Low temperatures (early tomorrow morning) will be right around 60 to the low 60s in the Lubbock area.
The next several days there is a slight chance of a few isolated storms/showers. The area most likely to see rain is generally near the state line or even west of the state line.
Coming up tomorrow, another mostly sunny and slightly breezy day. The afternoon will be a little warmer, mostly in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.
By late week, the anticipated weather pattern will keep us dry with warm afternoons. Highs will continue a bit above average, at times hitting the low 90s.
Recent rains have resulted in quite a roll-back to drought conditions. Unfortunately, for most producers it came too late in the season. Drought conditions, however, are expected to improve slightly through Autumn.
