Similar to 24 hours ago, a decaying cluster of storms moving out of
new mexico early in the morning has pushed an outflow boundary
across much of the caprock as of 08z. The storms associated with the
initial outflow have largely faded over the western south plains,
leaving slightly cooler temperatures and a mcv. Ahead of this
decaying activity, other spotty convection was generating cloud to
ground lightning and small pockets of heavy rainfall. The lubbock
airport was one recipient of a small and briefly intense storm that
dropped a quick 1.59 inches of rain, while here on the south side of
town (and really most of town) saw no rainfall. The heaviest
t-storm activity was now focused over southwest garza county, but
additional spotty activity could linger out into the rolling
plains this morning. Otherwise, the overnight outflow and
lingering convective debris will suppress heating a bit early on,
but temperatures should still make it into the lower to middle
90s. The heating, coupled with residual boundaries and perhaps
even the mcv, should renew isolated to scattered storm
development this afternoon, with the greatest coverage likely
favoring spots off the caprock.
This could change tonight as a shortwave trough emerging from the
central and northern rockies sparks widespread convection rolling
off the higher terrain into the central high plains. The bulk of the
lift from the trough will be to our north, but the southern end of|
the MCS could clip our northern and northeastern zones (or even
more of the cwa, if a couple of our more optimistic models are
correct) as it develops into a modest southerly llj.
Outflow from tonight's activity may linger in the CWA much of
Saturday before lifting back northward. This boundary, mostly likely
residing in our northeastern eastern counties by later in the day,
could be the focus for additional storm development late in the
day. However, coverage, if any, should be limited given large
scale sinking on the subsident side of departing upper trough.
Much hotter and likely dry weather will follow Sunday into Monday
as the eastern extent of a broad subtropical ridge noses over
western texas. Widespread triple digits look likely, and we may
need at least a heat advisory for some most of the fa as progged
850 mb temperatures approach 35c on the caprock.
We should see some relief Monday night into Tuesday as a broad
trough over the midwest sends a front into the south plains. This
will knock temperatures back toward average (maybe even slightly
below average) and could allow at least low storm chances to return
to the region as the front stalls nearby. Warmer hotter temperatures
will close out the forecast as heights begin to build and the
frontal zone retreats northward.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
