Freeze *Warning* tonight with limited chance for wintry weather

Today's high temperature of 63° was observed this morning at 8:33 a.m., but from that point, the temperature just kept dropping. Temperatures will drop to near-freezing levels overnight across much of the South Plains. The City of Lubbock may not necessarily reach these levels. If it does happen, it will be brief and likely right before sunrise. Regardless, it will be very cold for outside plants, crops, pets, and livestock so please keep that in mind. Exposed pipes should also be protected. It isn't cold enough to have to worry about dripping your faucets. The only exception is possibly as far north as Clovis, where Curry County is under a Hard Freeze Warning. By the way, Lubbock usually observes its first freeze by Halloween morning, so we are a bit early.

The chance for any sort of wintry precipitation is very low. There isn't much moisture, but right around the morning commute there is the possibility for some ice WELL north of Lubbock (pictured below). Again, Lubbock is likely going to remain above freezing for a large majority of the night. Specifically, we're looking at areas including Curry, Parmer, Castro, and Swisher counties. Just keep an eye out in the morning on the changing forecast and tune into Good Day Lubbock for the latest weather information.

TONIGHT: Expect a low of 33° in Lubbock with winds out of the NNE 20-25mph. Gusts above 30 are possible. Wind chills will be in the low 20s. A stray shower is possible under mostly cloudy skies.

MONDAY: Very chilly with highs only reaching 42° and mostly cloudy skies. A stray shower is possible with winds slowing down a bit, near 15-20mph out of the north.

While Tuesday morning may be near freezing again, the afternoon warms up quite a bit with warmer conditions continuing through the week. A stray shower is possible each day until the weekend, but temperatures overall will still remain below average.

Monday will be the coldest of the week! Stay warm!
