It was a windy and warm day across the South Plains with temperatures warming into the upper 80s and lower 90s this afternoon and max wind speeds in excess of 40mph. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


We will keep a steady south breeze tonight which will keep our temperatures mild overnight and tomorrow morning. The wind will be strong again tomorrow as we expect sustained west/southwest winds from 25-35mph with gusts at times up to 50mph. A cold front will move through late tomorrow afternoon and evening setting us up with a chilly day on Wednesday. Tomorrows temperatures should still warm to the 70s ahead of the front. We have a very slight chance for some rain late tomorrow night overnight into early Wednesday morning but rainfall amounts will be very light. We could also see some light snow flurries in our northern counties where temperatures will cool faster but we don’t expect any accumulations.

Most if not all of us will start off below freezing on Wednesday morning and we will only warm into the upper 40s and lower 50s in the afternoon. The wind won’t be as strong as it was today or will be tomorrow but it will still provide quite a wind chill with sustained wind speeds up to 25-30mph. We will have another freeze on Thursday morning but after that temperatures will quickly warm to around average to round out the week.

I hope you had a good weekend and be sure to join us tonight on the News at Nine! Matt will have an updated forecast for you tomorrow morning.
