Get Ready For Windy, Dusty, Fire Weather Conditions With Possibly Some Storms On Wednesday
You may have noticed it's been windy in and around Lubbock lately, and that will continue on Wednesday for most of the day and then the weather could change once again.
According to the National Weather Service, Wednesday's weather will look a lot like it did on Tuesday. Windy. A Fire Weather Watch is already in effect from noon to 7 p.m. for most areas on the Caprock. The good news is that eventually the fire weather conditions will go away on Wednesday evening which could open the door showers and thunderstorms to develop.
The City of Lubbock doesn't have a good chance of seeing rain on Wednesday as the dryline looks to be east of Lubbock according to the National Weather Service. That does mean though that areas across the Rolling Plains will see some showers pop up and a few could be severe. The Fire Weather Watch is in effect from noon to 7 p.m. with the possibility of dust and winds at 25 to 30 mph. It's also very possible that the watch could turn into a Red Flag Warning at some point on Wednesday.
So again, not the most beautiful of days are expected on Wednesday. And if you a fan of the wind, just wait until Thursday when it will be windy with a cold front is expected to slide through Lubbock dropping temperatures to highs in the lower 40's.
The good news? The weather looks to be great this weekend with highs in the 60's and lots of sun.
