Breezy and cold Friday with a chance for rain

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: It's been windy and dusty with the temperature in the lower 80s. Not too far away is our next cold front. Out to the west there are some rain showers in southern New Mexico. The showers have been more numerous west of the Continental Divide. 

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy, low near 37. A cold front will move across the area bringing a gusty NE wind 15-25mph. An isolated shower is possible.

FRIDAY: High near 45, cloudy. The NE wind will be strongest in the morning, gradually diminishing through the afternoon. 

There's a 40% chance for rain Friday. The latest data shows the chance is lower in the morning, up to a 40% chance from about 3 p.m. running into early Saturday morning.

Unfortunately, amounts look fairly light. But we'll take whatever we can get.

WEEKEND: A lingering shower is possible Saturday morning. It'll clear out and climb back into the mid 60s Saturday afternoon.

Sunday will be even warmer, lower 70s and breezy. There's a real slim chance for an isolated shower late Sunday. The chance is better well southeast of here.

NEXT WEEK: Warm with wind to begin the week. It'll turn cooler Wednesday.

7-day forecast

RECORD: Yesterday we tied the record for most days in a row without measurable precipitation at the Lubbock airport. If we don't get 0.01" of rain before Midnight tonight we'll set the record at 99 days.

Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow morning.
