The prominent system passing directly over the South Plains continues its push east. We have already gotten some wraparound rain and snow this morning and afternoon. It will likely be out of our area completely by tonight with the slight chance for  more lingering precipitation after, but not much.

Keep updated with our live stream radar below.

24 hour precipitation totals as of 4:00 p.m. today were pretty impressive after yesterday's widespread event. I've listed some below, more can be found at this link.

Spur: 1.59 in.
Paducah: 1.53 in.
Post: 1.47 in.
Fluvanna: 1.39 in.
Jayton: 1.37 in.
Gail: 1.36 in.
Lubbock: 0.54 in.

The cold front that came with that system will push the rest of its way through the area making for a cool start tomorrow in the low to mid 20s and a cool afternoon. Highs only in the low 40s.

Behind the system that brought us rain and snow, an upper level ridge will take over and bring us a gradual clearing trend throughout tomorrow. With the clear skies in place Monday morning, we will be even colder, dropping into the low 20s. But we will rebound quickly with a sunny afternoon and a high in the low to mid 50s.

We will see the sun and warmth hang around through Christmas eve but another upper level trough will drag the tail end of a cold front through our area on Christmas morning. Thankfully, this will be a dry system the most moisture we'll get will be in the way of some clouds in the morning.

 
 
 


We will also cool off slightly for Christmas day, into the 40s, but mostly sunny skies will make for a beautiful holiday! The sun sticks around through the end of the week and we could be back into the 50s by Friday!

Have a great weekend! Join Henry, Nick and I tonight on the News at Nine!
