KLBK Sunday PM Weather Update (8/2/20)


LUBBOCK, Texas (KLBK) – Here is your updated forecast from the KLBK First Warning Weather Center:

We had another round of scattered showers and thunderstorms across the Rolling Plains and the eastern South Plains this afternoon and early this evening. A few of the storms did reach severe limits due to 1.00″ hail and damaging wind gusts. One storm produced a 98 mph and an 82 mph wind gust at White River Lake around 6:00 p.m. Meanwhile, a large complex of showers and thunderstorms will drop into South and Rolling Plains later this evening and overnight from the Texas Panhandle and New Mexico. A few thunderstorms could produce gusty wind and small hail. Mostly cloudy conditions are expected this evening and overnight with low temperatures in the middle 60s.

Don’t forget you can track the shower and thunderstorm activity with our EverythingLubbock.com Interactive Radar.

Showers and thunderstorms will end across the area early Monday morning. Clouds will be on the decrease in the morning, with mostly sunny to partly cloudy conditions expected during the day. High temperatures on Monday will be in the lower to middle 90s.

Extended Forecast:
High pressure will build back over the region this week suppressing rain chances for the majority and cranking up the heat. A few models hint at a very isolated thunderstorm chance each day in the afternoon and evening hours. It’s not a big chance for rain, only around 5% to 10% daily.

Highs on Monday will be in the lower to middle 90s. Hotter weather returns during the week and continues into next weekend with upper 90s to lower 100s Tuesday through Sunday.

Overnight lows will be in the middle to upper 60s Monday and Tuesday mornings. Lows climb back into the lower 70s to middle 70s Tuesday through Sunday mornings.
