BREEZY MORNING: Behind a cold front it'll be breezy this morning, north wind to around 20mph. The wind will gradually back off this afternoon and become more easterly, high temp in Lubbock near 71 beneath a mainly sunny sky. It'll be cooler to the northeast, here is the forecast map for today:


We'll see a few more clouds tomorrow, high temp again in the lower 70s. The wind will begin from the NE light in the morning, though it should kick up more by the afternoon.

ACTIVE PATTERN: We see upper-level disturbances sliding across our region every few days. The first one was what kicked up all the dust and wind last night. While we see these passing systems every few days there isn't a convincing chance for rain from any of them.

There could be some drizzle or light rain Wednesday into Thursday, but again, the chance is low. It'll be breezy in the low 60s Wednesday, then rebounding right up to near 80 and windy on Thursday.

NEXT WEEKEND: Models are showing a change is on the way. The degree of change is highly uncertain. The American GFS, European and Canadian models all show a large trough or cut-off low developing in the middle of the nation, diving south. Just where it moves will determine how much colder it gets and whether any rain will develop here.

Because there is such a spread in guidance solutions there is little confidence in what the weekend will hold. For now we can say it'll turn cooler. Stay tuned for changes.


Have a great day! Rudy will have a full update to your forecast later today.
