Nice start to the day with mild temperatures, but big changes on the way with a strong front pushing through the Panhandle. Current temperatures below:
TODAY: Timing on this front is a key determination on how much you will warm. Colder temperatures expected to our northern counties as the front will push through this morning into the early afternoon. Central South Plains 70s and 80s will be likely, with 90s possible south. Staying dry with a mostly sunny sky and the wind will shift to the northeast increasing 15-25mph.
TONIGHT: Freeze Watch in place across much of our area with lows dropping to the upper 20s and 30s area wide. We could have a new record low temperature for parts of the South Plains. The northeast wind will be strong 20-30mph with gusts a little higher, this will make it feel like were in the 20s. Get the big coat ready for the morning and bring your pets and plants inside.
FRIDAY: Highs in the 50s with a sunny sky, northeast wind will be dropping off 10-15mph through the day.
EXTENDED: Another cold night Friday and Saturday morning as 30 degree lows continue. Temperatures will start to warm up but still chilly Saturday, then 70s and 80s into next week.
Have a great Thursday and stay warm tonight. Matt will have the latest updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
