Strong cold front expected late Thursday - FOX34 Lubbock

Strong cold front expected late Thursday

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: It's really warmed up across our area, with upper 80s around Lubbock. Even a few spots south of Lubbock made it into the 90s. A look to Montana shows heavy snow with the temperature in the 20s. Denver made it to the 80s, with the front about to move through there tonight. That front will make it across our area tomorrow.

TONIGHT: Low in the upper 50s, clear, wind S 5-15mph.

TOMORROW: There will be a huge temperature range across the region, from 50s in Amarillo to 90 Midland to Snyder. Here in Lubbock we're expecting a high in the mid 80s, but it all depends on when exactly the front gets here.

We expect the north wind and cooler air to move into Tulia and Silverton during the morning, Plainview by early afternoon and closer to Lubbock somewhere mid to late afternoon. You'll know when the front is here, the N/NE wind will kick up above 20mph, with gusts to 40mph possible. This will be a dry front, no rain is expected.

It'll be windy and turning colder for the game at Lowrey Field and the Hub City BBQ cookoff.

FRIDAY: Cold start, low near 34 in Lubbock. A freeze is likely north and northwest of Lubbock. It'll stay cool in the afternoon, high near 57. The north wind will gradually back off by the afternoon. In fact, the strong wind may actually help us avoid a freeze in Lubbock that morning. But the wind will, of course, make it feel colder.

For the Friday night football games, get ready for the cold. Starting in the 50s dropping into the 40s.

SATURDAY: With a clear sky and light wind, we expect a light freeze in Lubbock, with upper 20s possible from Muleshoe to Dimmitt. It'll rebound to the upper 60s Saturday.

LOOKING AHEAD: Milder weather is expected Sunday through at least the middle of next week. No significant rain chance over the next 10 days or so.

Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have the latest forecast track on that front tomorrow morning.
