Enjoy just one more pleasant day before the next cold front brings some changes. That day will be your Veterans day, beginning in the mid 40s to start, maybe some clouds hanging about but mostly sunny skies in the afternoon with a high in the low 70s.

Overnight tomorrow the front will arrive from the Panhandle. Winds will pick up to 20 to 25 mph from the northeast. Temperatures near midnight will be in the upper 40s to low 50s and they will drop into the low 40s to mid 30s as the front moves through. Wind chill will be a huge factor with this front so if you are going to be outdoors early Tuesday definitely bundle up.

There could also be some light rain or drizzle with this front, likely making this cold front feel even worse. Models are showing the freezing mark just to our north, maybe dipping into our northern counties. We would not be surprised to see some freezing rain for those folks, but only if the air behind the front gets that cold. If that is the case, be extra cautious on the roadways.

It should drop into the upper 30s in Lubbock, right behind the front in the morning but we will warm a tiny bit, into the low 40s for the afternoon. The front gets through the area fast so wind will die down a bit by the afternoon, but the still breezy conditions and mostly cloudy skies will not help the cold temperatures.

A rapid clearing and drying trend by Wednesday morning will leave us very cold, into the upper 20s for a low. And we will only get into the low 50s for the afternoon. With calmer winds and more sun, Wednesday shouldn't feel too bad compared to Tuesday.

 
 
 


Near 60 again by Friday and for the weekend, a very slight chance to see some more rain by the end of the work week, but it is still pretty far out to be completely sure. For now it looks like we should get a better taste of the sunshine again by at least late Saturday.

Join Nick and I for Kurt's Birthday edition of the News at Nine, tonight! Happy Birthday Kurt!
