It was a dreary and cold day with temperatures well below average both this morning and afternoon. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today as of 5pm. I will update them when they become final this evening.


There were a few light sprinkles today across the Rolling Plains but most of the rain that fell evaporated before it reached the ground. Clouds will clear overnight and with a light wind our temperatures will plummet. Most of us will stay above freezing with a low of around 39 degrees expected in Lubbock, but some of our northwestern communities could see a light freeze. For this reason the National Weather Service has issued a Freeze Warning for Parmer, Castro and Bailey counties.

Temperatures will warm to around 70 degrees tomorrow afternoon with a north wind around 10-20mph. The wind will stay light the rest of the week with temperatures gradually getting a bit warmer each day. Breezy south/southwest winds return at the beginning of next week with temperatures warming into the low to mid 90s. The next chance for rain might come at the middle of next week when the dry line could come back into play. This still being a week out there are a lot of details to still get worked out but until then we should stay dry.

I hope you had a great day despite the nasty weather! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
