We will continue to see a slight rise in temperatures today and tomorrow as a surface low to our north pulls in the warm air from the south. It will get us into the mid to upper 50s today and the upper 50s tomorrow with lots of sunshine.
As the low gets a little closer tomorrow, wind will pick up a bit from the southwest at 10 to 20 mph. As the front pushes through early Sunday morning we could see gustier winds. Despite the front we should still be in the mid 20s for a low Sunday.
As northerly winds behind the front push in the cold air, it will keep us from rising much past the upper 30s for a high. The front won't provide any rainfall but we will see some clouds build into the area, especially in the morning. Mostly sunny skies return to the forecast on Monday.
Monday morning will be cold, near 20 behind the front but we should warm up closer to average in the afternoon with a high in the upper 40s and mid 50s with sunny skies on Tuesday for your New Years Eve afternoon high.
Another surface low could set up to our north by Tuesday night which might help keep our Wednesday morning temperatures nice and mild. New Years day temperatures look like they will be above average as well.
The dry set up for the next seven days has not changed. Rain chances are slim to none, especially as another high pressure builds back into the area by Tuesday and into mid week next week.
I'm on Good Day Lubbock for Matt this morning, Rudy will have an updated forecast tonight!
