EXTENDED FORECAST - Storms were prolific rain makers overnight last night. Rescue operations have been underway since 1AM Thursday morning in Southwest Amarillo due to as much as 6 feet of water inundating buildings & apartments. Amarillo Fire Department is asking for people to avoid areas near Paramount and 26th if at all possible. Local & state resources are being utilized this morning to rescue residents around the Oakridge Apartments and surrounding buildings. The remainder of the day will be quiet for many with clouds diminishing by the afternoon. Highs will reach for the 80s today. Isolated storm to severe storms will be possible Friday on an isolated level between 3 and 9 PM. These storms will pose a risk for large hail and damaging winds. This weekend will feature mostly dry and warmer weather but won't rule out some rain chances in the northeast panhandles. This will give many the much needed chance to dry out and allow water levels in the playa lakes to recede some back to their normal banks. Next week could shape up to bring split weather back to the panhandles with a dryline setting up across the area. This will likely mean dry weather for the western half of the area and storm chances for the east. It is too soon to tell just where the dryline will be located at this time, but mid-range models suggest it may be east of I-27 and Amarillo keeping a large chunk of the area dry. One thing that makes us hesitant to say no rainfall next week is the amount of moisture in the ground and the green grass already growing. These two factors could aid in keeping the dryline further west so further monitoring of the dryline setup next week will be needed. The longer-range forecast does get muddled past Tuesday of next week but the trend is warmer and drier weather for the mid-to-late June timeframe.
