TONIGHT: Wind still breezy this evening 15-25mph before dropping over night to 5-15mph. Mostly clear sky with cold temperatures, low near 28.

RAIN CHANCES: A system will push out of the Pacific across our region. This will bring a chance for rain late Wednesday afternoon/evening. This precipitation will likely spread across our whole area through early Thanksgiving. Temperatures will be critical with above freezing and just rain expected to our eastern counties. Near freezing temperatures with rain and/or freezing rain/mixed precipitation possible on the Caprock, including Lubbock. This could lead to some slick roads for Thanksgiving travelers.

Have a great Tuesday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
