Freeze for much of area tonight, milder weather starting Sunday

Freeze for much of area tonight, milder weather starting Sunday

Posted: Updated:

It was a cold and breezy start this morning, with areas generally west and north of Lubbock freezing. It dropped to 33 in Lubbock, which set a new record low for the date. And for reference, the earliest freeze of the season on record in Lubbock is October 7, 1952. Records go back a little more than a century. 

Here are some lows from the Texas Tech Mesonet:

Dimmitt 27
Dora 27
Earth 27
Happy 27
Hart 27
Olton 28
Tulia 28
Amherst 29
Muleshoe 29
Aiken 30
Plainview 30
Silverton 30

Since then, despite plenty of sun, it only reached the mid 50s this afternoon. It'll be cold for the football games tonight, dropping to the mid to lower 40s.

TONIGHT: Low in Lubbock around 32, clear sky, light wind. A freeze is expected for most locations on the Caprock. We can't even rule out a freeze farther southeast, including Jayton and Spur.

TOMORROW: Sunny, high near 66. Wind S/SW 10-18mph.

LOOKING AHEAD: Sunday will warm back to the 80s with plenty of sun. We don't see it freezing or even dropping into the 30s any time soon. It also looks dry and mild. We can't rule out a few sprinkles Monday, but it doesn't look like much of a chance. Next weekend looks dry and mild.

TEXAS TECH: Kickoff in the mid 60s in Waco for the Red Raiders and Bears. It'll drop a few degrees through the game, sunset is at 7 p.m. Wind NE/E 5-12mph. Just a real small chance for rain tomorrow night.

Have a great weekend. Robert will have a full forecast update posted here Saturday.
