TONIGHT: Low clouds will likely develop by sunrise, low temp in the mid to upper 50s.
SATURDAY: Those clouds will be in place through the morning. The temperature won't move much if you'll be tailgating, temperature in the 50s to low 60s.
By kickoff just after 11 at Texas Tech the temperature should be in the mid to upper 60s. Low clouds are tough to forecast. Yesterday I expected them to break up around 10 or 11...didn't happen until mid-afternoon and it kept the temperature down. But it looks like clouds should thin out around Noon.
Through the afternoon more sunshine. High near 82, wind NE in the morning becoming SE 10-18mph.
While it may be cool at the kickoff, plenty of sun through the second half of the game will push the temperature to near 80 by the last snap. It won't be summer heat, but you can still get sunburned in that direct sunlight.
SUNDAY: Similar setup, clouds and cool in the morning with sunshine by the afternoon, high near 84.
NEXT WEEK: It should stay mild. We're watching a few things come together for another chance for rain. First, Hurricane Rosa in the eastern Pacific will be weakening as it approaches the Baja.
There will also be an upper-level low approaching from the west and possibly a cold front moving in from the north. With a lot of Pacific and Gulf moisture, this could lead to some more widespread, soaking rain.
First sign of rain comes up Tuesday, but it'll probably miss Lubbock to the west. The rain chance looks better late in the week. We're too far out for specifics, so we've got a few days with 20-30% chance for rain. As we get closer we'll see which day is more favored.
At this point it looks mild through Friday. Next weekend looks cooler, but that's dependent on a front moving through our area. That's also too far away.
Have a great weekend and Guns Up for Tech. Look for the next forecast update here tomorrow afternoon.
