This is a familiar map in the spring time. It's the daily Storm Prediction Center's severe weather outlook for today. There are three different colors on the map and they each have different meanings. The very light green to the west shows a small opportunity for some...

We are now into the month of May, which means we usually see more thunderstorms and severe weather. We have certainly see a few severe thunderstorm watches and warnings in the area. This time of year the dry line is the determining factor for when we see severe storms....

April 18, 2018

We finally have something different to talk about this week. A cold front has already moved through the area here on Wednesday. The wind has shifted to the north and northeast, pulling down colder and dry air. Unfortunately, this cold front has sucked out all of the mo...

April 4, 2018

It has been an interesting end to March and beginning to April across west Texas. Wednesday morning (April 4) we were waking up to temperatures in the 20s and 30s. So, the April Fools joke is continuing. At least the wind is weakening. We had wind gusting to 40 mph on...

March 28, 2018

We finally got to see measurable rain in Lubbock and across most of west Texas yesterday. A cold front interacting with Gulf moisture helped to bring in moisture amounts 200% of normal! There were many spots that came in with over one inch of rain. Officially here in L...

Spring officially started Tuesday at 11:15 am. We're actually going to be seeing very warm conditions as soon as this afternoon. By now I'm sure you're aware of La Nina, which has been plaguing us since November. La Nina brings dry and warmer weather to the southern Un...

Spring Break arrives tomorrow once the kids (and college students) are done with school. The start to the time of will be quite nice. We'll see mostly sunny skies on Friday, with a high reaching 80°. We'll even make it to 79° on Saturday. Wind, of course, will be aroun...

February 26, 2018

The latest 8-14 day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center came out on Sunday. There is some good news and of course bad news. The bad news is the picture on the left. That's the precipitation outlook for March 5-11. We're still going to see dry air taking over wes...

February 20, 2018

We went 99 days without receiving measurable precipitation here in Lubbock and now we have more in the forecast.  Coverage of this precipitation is going to be low, so not a ton will be affected. There is a strong cold front coming into the region this evening. That fr...
