It was hard not to notice last night's cold front sweep the area. It brought strong winds and a significant cool down to the South Plains, very quickly. We started in the upper 50s yesterday morning in Lubbock then warmed to 66 before the front came through the city at about 2:00 p.m. After that it was a rapid drop in temperatures, near 40 at 9:00 p.m. and finally our low for the day occurred at 11:58 p.m.
This morning got Lubbock all the way down to 32 degrees for the first freeze of the season and some of our northern counties saw temperatures all the way into the low and mid 20s. The graphic below was created by the Lubbock National Weather Service and it has some lows from this morning for the area.
Clear skies remain behind the front, so we should see another cool night, but not nearly as cold as this morning, likely only dropping to near 40. The dry air and sunshine tomorrow will allow a quick warm up into the mid to upper 70s, so the end to the weekend should be beautiful, maybe a little breezy.
Monday morning will once again be in the low 40s, but a cold front arrives in the morning hours and it will slowly bring in cooler air, allowing us to warm only into the low 60s and creating a cold Tuesday morning in the mid to upper 30s. That front won't have any rain associated with it so we will stick with mostly sunny skies.
The sun carries over into the middle and end of the work week and we will warm back into the low 70s, maybe the mid 70s. Overall we should see a pleasant but dry week ahead.
We will be on after the baseball game tonight for the late News at Nine!
