After a mild start to the day we warmed up quickly into the upper 80s and lower 90s this afternoon. Accompanying the warm temperatures was a steady south wind from 10-20mph with gusts up to 30mph. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
 
 
 

 
 
 

Another warm day is in store for us tomorrow as we only cool down to the 50s tomorrow morning and then warm into the 90s in the afternoon. Tomorrow’s record high is 93° in Lubbock, and we will be very close to matching or possibly even breaking that record. The wind shouldn’t be too strong, from the south at about 10-20mph.

Big changes come on Wednesday by way of a strong cold front. There are still some questions about when exactly the front will move through with some models bringing it through in the morning while others hold it off until later in the day. The afternoon temperatures on Wednesday will depend on when the front moves through, with colder temperatures if the front moves through early in the day and warmer temperatures if it moves through later in the day. We have sided with the faster frontal passage as that has been the recent history of these setups. Along with the colder air the wind will also be very strong, not just on Wednesday with the passage of the front, but also on Thursday. This strong north wind will make it feel even colder than the actual temperatures. On Thursday morning most of us should avoid a freeze with perhaps some freezing temperatures across our northern counties, but on Friday morning more locations will likely see freezing temperatures. Models continue to trend a bit colder with each new model run for Friday morning, but we currently have a forecasted low of 34° in Lubbock, so above freezing, but that could change. 

Temperatures will start to get warmer on Friday afternoon and we will be right back in the 70s and 80s at the beginning of next week.
