We set a new record high this afternoon with a temperature of 88° in Lubbock which broke the old daily record of 86° set back in 1966. All of us warmed into the 80s this afternoon with most warming into the upper 80s. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoons highs from today.
We will come close to matching or breaking the daily record high again tomorrow although that all depends on when a cold front will move through. We currently have a forecasted high of 83° in Lubbock and the daily record high is 87°. A cold front will move through the South Plains late tomorrow afternoon into the evening. The current thinking is that the front will move into our northern counties between 3-4pm before clearing the area tomorrow night. If this front were to move through sooner then we would have cooler afternoon temperatures while on the flip side if it were to move through later then our afternoon temperatures will be warmer. All that being said, this front won’t be that strong, as it will only cool us down by about 10-15 degrees and kick up the wind from the northeast at about 10-20mph.
We should see an increase of clouds Saturday night and on Sunday. Rain chances still look slim to none but there could be some light drizzle in our northern counties. Another disturbance will pass by at the middle of next week but again it just looks like we will see an increase of clouds, stronger wind but no measurable rain. There are signs that we could see a stronger cold front by the end of next week into the following weekend although that is still too far away for any specifics.
Have a great night and great weekend! I will give you the latest thinking on the front tonight on the News at Nine and Caitlin will have all the forecast updates for you this weekend.
