After a record cold start this morning it turned out to be a pretty nice afternoon. We started off at 25° in Lubbock which shattered the old daily record low of 30° set back in 1968. The 25° this morning is also the coldest we have ever been (since records have been kept) this late in the season. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
 
 
 

 
 
 

Clouds will increase tonight leading to milder temperatures tomorrow morning although it will still be cold. Most of the area should stay above freezing with perhaps a few exceptions across our northern counties. The current forecasted low for Lubbock is 38° and the daily record low for tomorrow is 35°. We will stay under a partly to mostly cloudy sky all day with a south/southeast wind from 10-20mph. There is a slight chance for a few isolated showers to work their way into eastern New Mexico but it does not look like any of this activity will move into the South Plains late tomorrow into early Friday.

Starting on Friday afternoon temperatures will warm back into the 70s and 80s and that will last until the next cold front moves through sometime during the middle of next week. The wind should stay fairly light over the weekend making for a nice stretch of weather. Models are showing a setup for some possible rain starting at the beginning of next week as several upper-level disturbances move overhead and interact with what should be more moisture in place. There are still some questions about our chances for rain but it does look like at the least we should see more clouds in the sky.
