Memorial Day Capped Off with Rain, Thunderstorms and Flooding Across Lubbock & South Plains

Derrick Ginter, KAMC News

The three-day Memorial Day weekend was a wet one in Lubbock and the South Plains.  Some portions of Lubbock, and the South Plains, received over 5″ of rain over the past week.

Some of the higher rainfall totals on Monday included Slaton with 2.24″ of rain, Wolfforth 2.09″, Abernathy 1.83″, Floydada 1.9″ and 1.87″ of rain here at the KFYO Studios.

Just before 6 o’clock Monday evening, Derrick Ginter from KAMC News spotted a funnel cloud in southeast Hockley County.  You can a see a photo of the cloud here in the article. Over the next hour, that storm brought winds up to 60 mph into Southwest Lubbock, pea sized hail and blinding rain. Urban flooding also occurred in Lubbock after that thunderstorm.

Also, some power lines were downed near 98th Street and Quaker after the storm.

A Tornado Watch continues for the vast majority of the South Plains until 11p Monday night.
