FREEZING START: We're in the 20s most of the area this morning, we've seen it in the teens at the Silverton and Muleshoe Texas Tech Mesonet sites. For Lubbock it's around eight hours of freezing weather once is all said and done. It sure was great weather to view the lunar eclipse, not a cloud in the region.

WARMER DAYS AHEAD: Plentiful sunshine today, but it'll still be nearly 10 degrees below the average high...near 66 in Lubbock, wind SW 12-25mph. Here is the area forecast:


Most or all of the area should avoid a freeze tomorrow, near 37 here in the city. We'll see a few more high clouds through the afternoon, high 77, SW-S wind 12-22mph. The next front will move through tomorrow night into Thursday morning, ushering in a gusty north wind. High only in the 60s Thursday and Friday.

We'll watch how much humidity returns behind the front. If it stays dry Friday morning we could see another freeze in the area. A few showers are expected Thursday over the Panhandle and western Oklahoma. At this point it looks like this rain will stay east of our area.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: Humidity will increase ahead of the next upper-level trough that moves in this weekend. It'll bring a chance for some showers and thunderstorms Saturday. A few showers could linger into Easter Sunday morning. Sunrise Sunday is at 7:11 a.m.


Have a great day. Rudy will have a complete update to the forecast later today.
