The warm days with lots of sunshine are over for a bit. More clouds pushed in the area overnight and will stay partly cloudy through the rest of today. A cold front move through around lunch time for Lubbock bringing a northeast wind 10-18mph. High near 61, but expect a range in highs from the upper 50s to possible 70s for our southern counties.
TONIGHT: Low near 33, mostly cloudy with the northeast wind still around 10-15mph.
INCREASING PRECIPITATION CHANCES: A good set up for widespread showers that are expected to increase early Thursday and continue through early Friday morning. We will be watching temperatures very closely because they will be barely moving through Thursday, high near 37. Models are indicating that our northern counties have a chance for freezing rain.
Last few days have been warm, so the ground might stay above freezing keeping icy spots at a minimum. Overpasses and bridges have no surface to keep heat, this is why they become icy first. This rain and freezing rain continues into early Friday before clearing from west to east by lunchtime. Then temperatures quickly climb with a light breezy from the southwest.
EXTENDED: Early Saturday another front move through but we stay dry with this one. Temperatures stay pretty chilly with highs in the 50s Saturday, then 40s into next week. Low temperatures will be back in the 20s and more cloud cover into next week, but staying dry.
Have a great Wednesday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
