It has been a pleasant start to the first day of June. Clouds will clear out this afternoon and we will reach into the middle-70s. A surface trough is expected to move through New Mexico this afternoon, sparking scattered showers and thunderstorms to our west. Tonight, we expect a broken line of strong to severe thunderstorms to exit New Mexico and push into West Texas. As these storms arrive, damaging winds and large hail will be possible, especially for the western half of the South Plains.
Rain chances will continue the next few days across the South Plains. Our best chance of rain arrives Wednesday afternoon and evening across the region with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Rain chances will decrease as we get into the weekend.
The extended outlook calls for near normal temperatures and a good chance for above average rainfall across the region.
The seven day forecast has rain chances through Friday, then clearing and warmer for this weekend.
Have a great afternoon!
