70 degree temperatures for Lubbock today will be long forgotten after a cold front tonight. Highs were much lower for our northern counties today because the front has already reached them. As it pushes south it will bring clouds, gusty winds and colder temperatures.
This front will likely bring some snow for the Panhandle, but we are likely to avoid most of the precipitation on the South Plains. Some of the southern Panhandle could see some and there is a slight possibility of some light flurries tomorrow morning and afternoon for the rest of us. For the most part, don't count on it.
Tomorrow we will drop to the low 20s behind the front with mostly cloudy skies. The good news is that the wind will die down a tad in the afternoon and we will quickly see skies clear leading to mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. We'll only rise to the mid 30s, maybe a little warmer if the sun helps us enough. Even though winds will calm down behind the front, wind chills will still be quite low, so bundle up.
We will get even colder without the clouds on Monday morning, dipping close to 10 for a low and a high only in the mid 30s again. You may spot some clouds here and there but mostly sunny skies will take over for the next couple of days with relatively light winds.
The better news is that we won't see temperatures nearly as cold as the bone chilling temperatures and wind chills expected for the northern states and Great Lake states in the coming days. They have wind chill warnings and winter storm warnings in place because of the same system that will bring us our cold.
We will warm back towards 50 by Tuesday and Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and hover there for most of the work week.
