It was a nice start to the weekend but cold end after last night's cold front. Highs didn't leave the 30s today for the South Plains and we have one more day of the cold, especially tomorrow morning.

We will drop to near ten degrees tomorrow, possibly into the single digits, especially for our northwestern counties. That's just the first half of the cold. Despite the relatively light winds at 5 to 10 mph, wind chill values will be near zero. Our northwestern counties will feel even worse. The graphic below was made by the Lubbock National Weather Service demonstrating the cold tomorrow morning.


Sunny skies and southwest winds at 5 to 10 mph in the afternoon will not help us much. We will only see a high near the mid 30s again. But the warmer weather will be back shortly after. Still cold for Tuesday morning in the mid teens but warming back into the upper 40s for the afternoon with sunny skies.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will hover in the low 50s with lows in the upper 20s and mostly sunny skies. We could see some changes with a weak cold front Wednesday night but as of now models aren't agreeing on that quite yet.


The trend models are agreeing on is the dry weather. Snow or rain changes are slim to none for the next seven days, expect this dry spell we've had for the last couple weeks to last at least another week.

The arctic blast has had a worse impact on the Midwest. Temperatures have been reported close to 30 degrees below zero with windchill values near 60 below zero for states along the Canada border. School and work cancellations have been a big trend for people there while blizzard conditions with heavy snow have also wreaked havoc for Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and other Midwest states.

Join Kurt, Nick and I for the News at Nine tonight! I'll be in for Matt on Good Day Lubbock tomorrow morning!
