THIS AFTERNOON: The clouds have limited the warm-up across our area, after colder air moved in behind a front last night. The clouds have cleared across Eastern New Mexico, where it warmed into the 50s today.
TONIGHT: The clouds will thin some, low temp mid 20s. Wind E/N 5-12mph.
WEDNESDAY: Some clouds may linger in the morning, lots of sun for the afternoon. High near 53, wind N/SE 5-12mph. It'll be cooler east of Lubbock.
REST OF THE WEEK: Thursday will climb back into the mid 60s with a gusty SW wind. Friday will be even warmer, lower 70s.
WEEKEND CHANGES: Models are still showing a wide range of solutions for the weekend, including a difference of about a day and a half on when the next front will move through. Because of this, our confidence is low on the weekend forecast. For now we're forecasting cooler and breezy Saturday, colder and breezy Sunday.
We are also seeing some support for a few showers this weekend or early next week. While the models are suggesting an overall pattern change, I'm not too excited just yet over the rain prospects. It's badly needed, but we don't have rain in the forecast just yet. Let's hope this trend in the guidance continues...and, more importantly, it actually does rain somewhere in West Texas. It's been nearly three months.
Have a great rest of your day. Whitney will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
