Cool Thursday, warmer weekend ahead

Posted: Updated:

PRECIP OUT OF HERE: As forecast, it wasn't much precipitation. But it was just enough to create some icy bridges this morning. The showers ended early in the morning. With some clearing in the sky, the temperature was able to drop a few more degrees before morning commute.

As mentioned past few days, it's tough to add up much snow when there are multiple types of precipitation. This is why we didn't expect much around Lubbock, with a few inches to the NW. Here are snow totals reported by the National Weather Service:

Lubbock airport 0.5"
SW Lubbock 0.3"
Woodrow 0.2"

Friona 4.5"
Morton 4.5"
Hart 4"
Dimmitt 3.8"
Floydada 3"
Olton 3"
Silverton 3"
Littlefield 2.5" snow, 0.5" sleet
Plainview 2.4"
Turkey 2"
Plains 2"
Lovington 2"
Ropesville 1.5"
Hobbs 1"
Brownfield 0.5"
Childress 0.2"


With plenty of sun, it's climbed back into the mid to upper 40s this afternoon. And the sun is drying up the roadways. We can't rule out a few minor icy patches tonight, but for the most part, surfaces will be good. The strong upper-level trough is moving east and behind it the weather pattern will be pretty quiet next few days.

TONIGHT: Low near 22. Some low clouds or fog may develop just before sunrise. Wind N/NE 4-8mph.

TOMORROW: Becoming mostly sunny, cool. High near 48, wind NE/S 5-15mph.

WARMING TREND: Friday will still fall below the seasonal average with plenty of sun. Then it'll really warm up this weekend, mid 60s on Saturday, lower 70s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK; Another strong cold front should arrive some time late Monday. If it's earlier than we expect right now, Monday will be much cooler. At this point we're forecasting 70s Monday with the temperature falling late in the day. The middle to latter part of next week will be colder. There also may be some rain or snow, though it's quite a ways out, so the chance isn't great at this point.

Have a good rest of your day. Bobby will have the next update posted here tomorrow morning.
