LUBBOCK, Texas (KLBK) – Here is your updated forecast from the KLBK First Warning Weather Center:
Another hot day is on tap across the South Plains and the Rolling Plains with highs in the upper 90s to lower 100s expected. However, we do have a slight chance for thunderstorms from late this afternoon and into the evening hours, mainly for areas on the Caprock. The frontal boundary that moved into the area on Wednesday is still around, not to mention some monsoonal moisture. These two factors, combined with our daytime heating, we’ll help initiate a few thunderstorms.
Don’t forget you can track the any shower and thunderstorm activity with our EverythingLubbock.com Interactive Radar.
Extended forecast: mostly sunny to partly cloudy conditions can be expected each day across the south and rolling plains. There is a slight chance for thunderstorms Thursday and Friday afternoon and evening. Otherwise, hot and mainly dry weather will continue to dominate the extended forecast model. A couple of the forecast models hint at many a stray thunderstorm developing each day from Saturday to Wednesday. Even though high pressure will be in control of our weather, there is still plenty of monsoonal moisture around the area.
Daytime highs will be in the middle to upper 90s, with overnight lows in the lower to middle 70s over the extended forecast period.
Extreme, severe and moderate drought conditions continue across all of the South Plains and most of the Rolling Plains. We did see the exceptional drought area decrease some thanks to recent rainfall across these areas.
