MIDLAND — Rain chances as high as 70-percent remain in this weekend’s forecast for the Seminole community, as a complex weather system makes its way into the southwestern region.
According to forecast models from the National Weather Service, the storm system will cross the Texas South Plains late this weekend, bringing with it the potential of up to 2-inches of rain fall in some portions of the South Plains and Permian Basin.
“Cold air initially will bring a threat of light ice into the early weekend,” said NWS officials on their regional websites. ” Then, an abundance of moisture will lead to large rainfall totals late in the weekend, and even a threat of strong to severe thunderstorms; large hail will be the greatest threat. Temperatures will remain in the 30s and 40s.”
Highs on Friday are expected to be in the low 40s, as the cold front passed through the region earlier in the overnight hours. Rain chances in the Seminole community were expected to be near 30-percent.
Precipitation chances ramp up on Saturday, as a 60-percent chance of showers is possible during the daytime hours, with a high near 43-degrees. Those rain chances increase to 80-percent on Sunday, with a high near 55-degrees.
