First Alert Forecast: Fire weather warning issued
Fire Weather Warning issued by the National Weather Service

(KCBD) - The chance of measurable precipitation over the next 24 hours is slim. The low clouds this morning may generate a few sprinkles. The dryline may help start thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, but indications are the ingredients will be mainly confined to the far northeastern KCBD viewing area. This leaves very little chance of measurable rain in and near Lubbock.

A Fire Weather Warning is in effect this afternoon, and another is likely tomorrow afternoon. The Fire Weather Warning is in effect from Noon until 9 p.m. today for Parmer, Castro, Swisher, Bailey, Lamb, Hale, Cochran, Hockley, Lubbock, Yoakum, Terry, and Lynn.

The chance of measurable precipitation in the 24 to 48 hours period is low. Any storms tomorrow are most likely in the late evening or Wednesday night. To the west of the Caprock, storms will be possible, but the severe risk is expected near and east of the Caprock. In fact, it is more likely the more east of the Caprock one looks.

Weekend weather looks very nice. You'll find the details in our forecast on our Weather Page and in our free KCBD First Alert Weather app.
