Portions of the South Plains and West Texas could see a rouge shower or isolated thunderstorm this afternoon. A vast majority of possible thunderstorm activity will remain in New Mexico. The remainder of Texas will remain dry today. Temperatures will be a bit cooler than Wednesday with high temperatures mainly in the 80s. Low temperatures tonight will be pleasant for June with 60s to mid 70s depending on your location. Rain chances look to increase late next week as we see the upper level pattern shift to a northwesterly flow aloft resulting in the chance for thunderstorm complexes to move in from Kansas/Colorado during the nighttime hours. We’ll see if that pattern change actually verifies but its certainly not an unusual one for this time of year.
After chasing in Wymoming and Colorado on Wednesday I’ll be finishing up the drive back home from Kansas today. We got lucky with a severe thunderstorm just before sunset about 20 miles south of Denver International Airport. For a while there I thought we’d be coming back home from a 1500 mile chase trip with only a few rain drops! Pics later on once we get home.
