COOL PATTERN: It'S another cold morning, but the wind is much lighter than yesterday morning. Average low this time of year is 33 and we mainly have 20s this morning, a few teens over the SW Panhandle. With the light NW wind the wind chill is in the teens. It'll warm to the low 50s this afternoon, staying about 10 degrees below the average. Mostly sunny, wind NW 5-15 mph.
NEXT FRONT: It'll feel cooler tomorrow because of a gusty N wind about 10-22mph behind another cold front, high temp in the upper 40s to low 50s. We'll see a few more clouds tomorrow and possibly a few sprinkles or flurries. Even the weak precipitation signals models were showing yesterday are fading, so we might not even see sprinkles.
WEEKEND: Upper-level ridging builds in by Sunday and that'll warm things up. In fact, models have also trended warmer for Saturday, so we've adjusted the forecast up into the 60s beneath a mostly sunny sky. Sunday will have a SW breeze helping to warm it to the upper 60s to low 70s. Remember last Sunday? It was in the 70s...then a blizzard came the next morning. No blizzard for next Monday unless you go to DQ.
NEXT WEEK: Things look pretty quiet. After a windy Monday in the 70s it'll turn a little cooler Tuesday behind a weak front. Mainly sunny and dry days will be the rule. Both the GFS and European models are pointing to a storm system out west moving this way late in the week. That could be our next chance at precipitation, models have been pretty consistent on developing that trough out west for a few days.
SKYWARN: If you want to become a trained weather spotter or just want to learn more about the weather you should attend a Skywarn training session, hosted by our friends at the National Weather Service. The next session is 7 p.m. tonight at the Levelland Civic Center. Click here

Have a great day. Rudy will have the next forecast update here later this afternoon.
