The last two days have been cold. Christmas day we had a high in Lubbock of 35, yesterday our high was 36 and the average for those days is 53 degrees. We will finally warm back up a bit for this afternoon. Temperatures are expected to reach up into the upper 40s and low 50s with mostly sunny skies. Some clouds could build up towards the evening hours.
We are expecting a cold front early tomorrow morning that will drop our temperatures once again into the 30s. As of right now this cold front is not going to provide us with much moisture, besides some clouds for Friday afternoon. Some of our northern counties could see a very light sprinkle late tonight, but for the most part we're expecting to be dry.
After the front passes we'll see a high on Friday only in the mid 30s and partly cloudy skies. It will also provide a cold start to your Saturday morning in the mid teens but with the return of some sunshine and southwesterly winds, we'll bump back up into the mid to upper 40s in the afternoon.
The slightly warmer temperatures will remain for Sunday as well as mostly sunny skies, still barely below average though.
NEW YEARS EVE AND DAY:
Monday some cloud cover will build into the area as yet another cold front develops to the northwest of here. It will arrive in the South Plains sometime late Monday. This will bring even more changes to the South Plains, dropping temperatures that night and for your New Years day.
This second cold front within the next seven days is looking to have some moisture. Your New Years Eve could be on the wet side with many of the models forecasting some rain, which could turn over into snow overnight. This system is still pretty far out, so we will continue to monitor it's progression and how it will affect the holiday in the coming week.
I am filling in for Matt through tomorrow morning and Rudy will have your updated forecast for tonight on the News at Nine!
