Monday's weather

November 19, 2011

A few isolated showers and storms may develop over the High Plains today! Though these storms will be ‘hit-or-miss,’ a few lucky folks could receive anywhere from around .01” to upwards of .10” of rainfall! It’s unfortunate that we can’t get a widespread heavy rainfall all day, but in this kind of drought, we’ll take what we can get, even if it is sporadic in coverage! Mostly cloudy conditions will be present, and our afternoon high temperatures will struggle to reach into the upper 50s.
