Rainfall totals from Tuesday storms
(KCBD) - It appears the entire KCBD viewing area received some rain yesterday, with some spots picking up more than an inch. That includes some areas of Lubbock.
The chance for additional measurable rainfall today and tonight is low. I do not expect a repeat of yesterday when I put the chance of measurable rain for Lubbock at 90 percent. Today I put the chance of measurable rain for Lubbock at no more than 30 percent. That may be a little optimistic.
What I do expect is some sunshine this afternoon leading to spotty non-severe thundershowers. Most of the area will not record rainfall, but where the core of a shower passes there may be some localized moderate rain. These thundershowers may produce small hail and wind gusts up to about 40 mph. Outside of the shower activity winds will be light.
In the coming days, our afternoons will get warmer. At first just a bit, then quite a bit.
Easter morning, however, coincides with the arrival of a cold front. With that in mind, I expect a cloudy Sunday, with a windy and cold sunrise followed by a breezy and chilly afternoon. A sundress might not be the best option Easter morning. I know I won't be wearing one. A jacket, however, I likely will.
