Precipitation chances on the rise today, some travel concerns early Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

A lot of travelers today and the storm system yesterday brought heavy snow from Colorado to the great lake region. Another system will bring heavy snow along the west coast next few days. Good news if you are traveling across Texas flights are on time, but if flying else where keep updated with your flight status.

TODAY: Much colder temperatures expected with the high only near 41. The wind will be much lighter than yesterday where we have wind gusts 55-65mph in our area. The wind will stay 5-15mph changing to the southeast. A plume of pacific moisture moves across our region, this will bring a increasing chance for precipitation later today through early Thanksgiving. As temperatures start to drop a chance for freezing rain and mixed precipitation will be possible. Current radar below:

TONIGHT: Low near 31 with the coverage of rain, freezing rain, and sleet increasing across much of the area. Temperatures stay above freezing for our eastern and southern counties where it will stay rain. From Lubbock to our north and west the chance for rain and freezing rain may continue. Not much ice expected, but it only takes a tenth of an inch to cause slick spots on roads. Some travel concerns possible to start Thanksgiving morning mainly on overpasses and bridges.

THANKSGIVING: The better chance for precipitation will be before noon, then mostly cloudy and still cold. Perfect weather to stay indoors and enjoy some time with family.

EXTENDED: Some on and off showers on Friday possible with temperatures climbing to the 60s. The strong wind returns Friday and Saturday as the next front pushes across the area. This will clear out the clouds and precipitation and drop highs to the 50s this weekend.

Have a great Wednesday! Matt with the latest look for Thanksgiving tonight on the News at Nine.
