A strong cold front moved through the South Plains late last night into early this morning setting us up with a windy and cold day. The wind was strongest early morning as the front moved through and has slowly lost its strength throughout the day. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
The wind will become light tonight and clouds will clear out allowing our temperatures to quickly cool down to a hard freeze tomorrow morning. The daily record low for tomorrow in Lubbock is 30° set back in 1968, and it’s a pretty good bet that we will break that tomorrow. After the cold start to the day temperatures warm into the 50s and 60s in the afternoon under a sunny sky with a light wind.
Clouds will increase on Thursday as an upper-level disturbance moves in from the west. Rain chances with this disturbance do not look great but it currently looks like we could see some showers and storms form in eastern New Mexico and with this activity moving east some could skim the area.
We warm back into the 80s on Friday and stay that way through the weekend with the wind looking to stay fairly light on both Saturday and Sunday. There are some signs for rain chances at the beginning of next week but with lots of uncertainty and plenty of time still left anything could change. Stay tuned!
I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have the next forecast update for you tomorrow morning.
