LUBBOCK, Texas (KLBK) – Here is your updated forecast from the KLBK First Warning Weather Center as of Sunday evening:
The weather was quiet on this Sunday across the South Plains and the Rolling Plains. High-resolution forecast models were showing a slight chance for thunderstorms developing over the far southern and southeastern Rolling Plains. Those storms ended up developing to our east across the Big County and Texoma.
High-resolution forecast models are showing another chance for isolated thunderstorms developing late Monday afternoon and into the evening hours. Their output seems to favor thunderstorm development over the Rolling Plains, but we can’t rule out a storm forming on the Caprock.
There is also a “marginal” risk (1 out of 5 chance) for severe weather Monday afternoon outlined by the Storm Prediction Center. The outlined area includes central/eastern South Plains and all the Rolling Plains.
We’ll keep an isolated thunderstorm chance in the forecast for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before we transition back to dry weather pattern across the South Plains and Rolling Plains. Sunny to mostly sunny conditions are expected each day and mostly clear conditions at night.
Daytime highs this week and into next weekend will range from the upper 80s to the middle 90s. Overnight lows will range from the middle to upper 60s.
We remain drought-free at the current time across all the South Plains and the Rolling Plains. Some minor drought issues continue to our west in parts of south-central New Mexico.
