Ag Journal Weather Forecast: Week of June 4th

LUBBOCK, Texas -  

Happy Monday everyone! It has been a very quiet afternoon across the South Plains following the large MCS (thunderstorm complex) that slowly moved across the region late last night. It brought us another dose of some much needed rainfall ranging from a quarter of an inch to over an inch in select locations. This also helped keep our temperatures right around average this afternoon. Unfortunately that will not be the case for the remainder of the work week with high temperatures skyrocketing back into the upper 90's and the triple digits through the beginning of next week. Sunshine will be abundant over the next seven days but we are watching for a few additional opportunities for some storms. The first round will come tomorrow afternoon with the dry line set up to our West along the Texas/New Mexico border and the front still stalled to our North. The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under the Marginal Risk Category for strong to severe storms tomorrow afternoon and evening so make sure to stay weather aware. Then the second potential round of storms will come on Thursday. Despite our storm chances, it is imperative to wear sunscreen, stay hydrated, and take breaks indoors during peak heating hours. Also, make sure to bring your pets inside during those peak heating hours and keep them hydrated as well.
