We've been talking about the chance for rain on Tuesday for a few days now, and things seem to be looking a little wetter now.
While today was warm, and tonight is expected to be mild for early March standards, Monday will be a bit cooler thanks to a weak cold front moving across the area. This will drop temperatures a bit, but not dramatically. Areas down toward the Permian Basin may still reach the 70s in the afternoon, while areas closer to the Panhandle will likely only reach the 50s. At the moment, it even looks to wet for this front to squeeze out some rain drops across the area. However, as we move into Tuesday, the chance for rain has increased. At the moment, we are expecting scattered showers across about 50% of the area. Some of these may even linger into early Wednesday morning.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy, especially south of Lubbock, low of 45°, WSW wind 5-15mph.
MONDAY: Partly cloudy, especially in the morning, high of 66°, W wind 5-10mph.
Thereafter, things are looking sunny again with highs climbing into the upper 60s. Despite the cold front, no nights are expected to reach freezing temperatures in Lubbock, although we certainly get close to it.
