LUBBOCK, Texas -

TODAY: Mostly sunny with high clouds pushing across the area like yesterday. Big difference in the wind speeds from the southwest, only 10-15mph expected. Dry air moves back in with temperatures in the upper 50s by noon, high near 65.

TONIGHT: Low near 37, clouds start to increase by the morning.

FRIDAY: Partly sunny with the high near 57, gusty westerly wind back 10-20mph. A cold front pushes through the area later in the day. This will bring a blustery north wind 20-30mph and colder air behind it. With a shallow layer of moisture some light showers possible, then as temperatures plummet some snow flurries. Only light accumulations possible in parts of our area, this quickly ends early Saturday morning.

OUR REGION: This system interacts with better moisture east of us with conditions for severe storms with a high risk for tornadoes. Storms expected to develop Friday afternoon across central and north Texas with a line of severe storms pushing southeast through Saturday morning. Here is the latest Storm Prediction Center outlook highlighting where areas of significant weather is expected for Texas:

Then through the weekend across the southeastern U.S. this activity continues with more tornadoes likely. 

WEEKEND: Sunshine with a short lived cold spell Saturday. The wind stays breezy making it feel colder, then highs climb to near 60s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: Sunshine and dry conditions continue with highs climbing to near 70 by Tuesday. Models do hint another strong front to end out the week.

Have a great Thursday! Robert in with the next updated forecast tonight on the news at Nine.
