Rain showers have returned to parts of West Texas today, courtesy of an upper level disturbance, as depicted in the above radar mosaic from the National Weather Service just before 2pm CDT today.

Heaviest showers are currently between Hobbs, NM and Lubbock, TX, with lighter showers scattered from just south of Amarillo, down through the South Plains and toward the Abilene area. Rainfall amounts at any given location should be light, but as always, we welcome any rain we can get out here, especially with the latest drought forecasts we recently told you about.

This activity is slowly moving off to the ENE and will eventually move on into SW Oklahoma this evening. Aside from that, should be a pleasant Fall day across the rest of Texas!

Models have been depicting another shot of rain mid-week, and we’ll talk about that more on Tuesday, when I bring you your Texas holiday travel forecast!
