Cold and gloomy today, wide spread rain with freezing rain possible

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Some light rain and freezing rain occurred this morning for our northern counties. More showers are moving in from the south. Current radar below:
South Plains Radar

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: Our northern counties are under this advisory until noon with the better chance for freezing rain causing slick spots on roads and overpasses. It doesn't take much accumulating ice for slick conditions to begin. There is a possibility the advisory is extended in time and for more locations.

TODAY: Cold and gloomy with showers becoming more wide spread with periods of freezing rain possible. The big question will be how cold does it get though the day at the surface. Models are keeping temperatures close to freezing for Lubbock, if we are colder there may be a higher risk for freezing rain and icy roads. Northeast wind will make it feel colder then calming later today 5-15mph.
Current Temperature

TONIGHT: Wide spread rain continues with heavier precipitation likely. Again periods of freezing rain possible with temperatures near or below freezing. The wind changes from the northeast to the south, this should help temperatures to warm a few degrees before waking up.

FRIDAY: Precipitation will continue in the morning but will start clearing from west to east. As it clears sunshine will be possible in the afternoon with the southwest wind becoming breezy 10-20mph. Highs quickly warm to the 50s with some 60s possible.

WEEKEND: A dry cold front move through early Saturday to drop highs down to the 40s and 50s Saturday. Partly cloudy Sunday will help to keep chilly temperatures down.

NEXT WEEK: Another front will keep temperatures chilly to start the week. More clouds Tuesday and Wednesday with models disagreeing if we get any precipitation.

Have a great Thursday and drive safe if dealing with freezing rain. Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
