Daytime temperatures continue a cooling trend ahead of an incoming storm system that will bring rain to the area by Thursday night.

Wednesday's high will be around 60 for Kiowa County, with mid- to lower 50s through the weekend. Overnight lows will mainly be in the 30s.

An upper low pressure system moving toward the four corners area by Friday is expected to bring snow to higher elevations of the southern mountains by Thursday and rain across the southeast plains.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible after 3:00 p.m. Thursday, with one-quarter to one-half inch of rain likely after midnight.

Rain is expected to continue Friday, bringing an additional one-half to three-quarters of an inch of precipitation throughout the day before decreasing Friday night.

Look for 15-20 mile per hour winds Wednesday and similar conditions Thursday, with the addition of gusts to 30 mph.
