We started off well above the average low this morning and most of us warmed into the 60s and 70s this afternoon. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
The cold front moved farther south than expected today but should retreat back north tonight. The front will move back south tomorrow and clear the entire area by the evening. Due to this back and forth movement of the front over the next 24 hours the temperature forecast will be very difficult but right now we are going with a low of 39 and a high of 57 tomorrow in Lubbock. Communities to the northeast will be colder while communities to the southwest will be warmer. Below is a graphic showing the current temperature which updates several times an hour.
Once the front clears the area tomorrow much colder air will move in and we will stay cold all of next week. Morning lows will be in the teens and 20s while afternoon highs will be in the 30s and 40s.
We also have two chances for precipitation over the next week. The first starts late Saturday night through Sunday. Looking at the current temperature profile it looks like any precipitation we see will fall as snow although a brief period of freezing rain/sleet is possible across the Rolling Plains before it transitions to snow. That being said, chances are slight and amounts will be light, with no more than an inch expected on the Caprock and that would just be in spots. The best chance for any precipitation will be off the Caprock across the Rolling Plains. Our next chance for precipitation will be late Monday into Tuesday but that is still too far away for any details.
I hope you had a great day! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Caitlin will have all the forecast updates for you tomorrow.
