BREEZY DAY: It won't be as windy as yesterday but the tight pressure gradient, or difference between the departing low pressure system to the east and cold, high pressure building into the region, will lead to a breezy day. This morning the wind is NW 15-20mph. With the temp in the 20s the wind chill is starting in the teens.
Clouds will diminish into the afternoon, turning mostly sunny. Despit the sun, it'll stay about eight degrees below the average high, Lubbock's high near 48. Wind will only gradually back off this afternoon, to about 15-18mph by late afternoon. Here are the projected highs for the area today:
CLEAR DAYS AHEAD: With the dry airmass and the wind diminishing tonight it'll get cold, low near 23 in Lubbock, some teens north and west of the city. The wind chill won't be as bad in the morning with lighter wind.
It'll warm back to the 60s rest of this week into the weekend. A southwest breeze will help warm Friday to around 64. The average high is 56 this time of year. There may be a few weak fronts that try to edge into the area, there aren't any signs of cold weather here for the next week. There also aren't any big storm systems ahead, so we should stay with quiet, mild, mostly sunny to partly cloudy days into early to middle of next week.
Have a great day! Rudy will have the next forecast update here later this afternoon.
