Winter storm watch: snow likely late Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

It's going to turn much colder next few days, likely with travel issued tied to snow. Typical of the days leading up to winter weather here, it's been mild once again, with 60s across much of the area. Clouds have increased through the day, a sign of the approaching storm system. The front has moved into the Panhandle, where it's been a bit colder today. Here are current conditions:

TONIGHT: Cloudy, temperature dropping to near 35 by morning.

TOMORROW: It'll turn colder and get windier through the day. Temperature falling to the low 30s in the afternoon, wind N/NE 15-25mph making it feel much colder. It'll be cloudy through the day. A few sprinkles are possible early afternoon.

Then rain or snow are possible late afternoon/early evening...before snow is likely tomorrow night through Wednesday morning. There are still some differences in where the computers show the heaviest snow, but we've got a pretty good grasp on how it should play out. Snow is expected to wind down Wednesday morning.

Around Lubbock we expect about 2" to 4" of snow, with lesser amounts northwest and greater amounts southeast.

Because this is a strong storm system, we expect some heavier bands with quite a bit more snow. But those are difficult to pin down.

TRAVEL ISSUES: Roads may already get slick tomorrow evening. It's likely roads will be slow but drivable Wednesday morning. Since it may not get above freezing Wednesday, we may also have slick roads Thursday.

COLD DAYS: Wednesday morning it'll drop into the teens. The gusty north wind will drop the wind chill to around zero. It'll only reach the 30s Wednesday afternoon, followed by teens again Thursday morning.

LOOKING AHEAD: Milder weather is in store for the weekend. 

Have a great rest of your day. Join us for new information tonight on FOX34 News at Nine. And Bobby will have an update tomorrow morning right here and on Good Day Lubbock.

    Warm again Sunday, but windy

    Expect mostly cloudy skies overnight with low temperatures only in the mid 40s, which is a bit above average for this time of year. We're back in the upper 60s again Sunday, even 70s for some areas. With that comes more sunshine by the afternoon, perhaps
