THIS MORNING: It's a clear and cold start, 20s for most of our area with the wind chill in the teen. It's a real quiet picture for the region, no clouds. Snow is up across the Great Lakes and Midwest, moving east. For us just lots of sunshine on the way.

TODAY: It'll warm more than 10 degrees above the average high of 54...topping out around 67 in Lubbock, wind SW/S 5-12mph. Sunset tonight 5:41.


NEXT FEW DAYS: It'll be pretty similar tomorrow, the wind picks up from the SW Wednesday and Thursday. If you have some outdoor chores or some shopping to get done before Christmas, these next few days will be ideal for your.

NEXT FRONT: A stronger cold front will slide across the region sometime late Thursday or early Friday. The past few days the guidance has backed off significantly on how cold this air will be, taking the brunt of it east of our area. We now expect the high in the 40s Saturday and Sunday.

We're also watching a storm system off the Pacific coast that'll move this way over the weekend. It might bring some rain Saturday into Sunday. At this point it looks like this would mainly be just rain rather than wintry mix, but is something we'll watch. The better chance for precipitation will stay east of our area.

Looking long-range, things look quiet here for the first half of next week. Of course, a lot can change between now and then.


Have a great day, Rudy will have an updated look at the forecast later today.
