Chilly tonight, cold later this week

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: It's a sunny day, about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday, with 60s and 70s across the area. The same storm system that produced a tornado in Dallas last night and severe weather across North Texas brought us this cooler weather. Heavy rain and storms moved across Southeast Texas this morning, now clearing the state. Behind that front, it'll be pretty chilly again tonight.

TONIGHT: Clear, low near 37 in Lubbock. Wind N/NE 5-10mph. A freeze is possible northwest of Lubbock, around Muleshoe, Amherst, Olton and Dimmitt.

TOMORROW: Sunny, quiet fall day. High near 72, wind E/S 5-15mph.

LOOKING AHEAD: Wednesday will be warmer ahead of a stronger storm system. As has been the case for the past few days, there are still significant differences in the computer guidance for this next storm system. One computer has a stronger upper low dropping into our region, bringing much colder weather and some mixed precipitation. A few other computer models aren't as aggressive, still much cooler, but without precip.

For now we expect it to turn colder and windy Thursday, with the high only in the low 50s. The chance for showers doesn't look great. But we may have to make major changes to the forecast if it looks like the more aggressive solution seems more realistic. It may drop to a freeze in Lubbock Friday morning, with a freeze expected for areas west and north of the city.

The weekend will turn warmer and sunny.

Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast here early tomorrow.
