Ice still a concern, more melting tomorrow

Temperatures this morning in Lubbock dropped to 11°! Compared to the rest of the South Plains, Lubbock was considerably colder thanks to the heavy snowpack. It'll be similar tonight, but at this point, I don't expect temperatures to drop that low. Patchy freezing fog may be an issue again, only exacerbating the melting snow on the roads today.  By the way, freezing fog consists of supercooled water droplets that freeze instantly on contact as they touch a surface below freezing. Share that cool knowledge with your friends and remind them to take it easy on the roads if they have to drive tonight.

TONIGHT: Patchy freezing fog with a low temperature of 23°, likely a bit warmer outside of the Lubbock area. WNW winds at 5mph under clear skies.

MONDAY: Early morning freezing fog with sunny skies by the late morning. Expect a high of 49°, likely into the 50s outside of the Lubbock area. WNW winds 5-10 mph.

Some places may even reach the 50s on Monday, with lots of sunshine expected for everyone. An area of high pressure is sitting right on top of us and keeping our skies clear, but as that pushes further south, our winds will shift toward the southwest bringing in some slightly warmer air across the area; as high as the 60s midweek. Another front is forecast to move through though, and that will amplify our winds again with windy conditions expected toward the end of the work week. Freezing temps will return, but not like this past weekend and no snow is expected.
