It's a warm day with 80s across most of our area this afternoon, even up around 90 over the SE Panhandle. Not too far away is the next cold front, which will move through early tomorrow morning.
TONIGHT: North wind increasing after Midnight, at times up to 20-25mph sustained with higher gusts. Low near 38 in Lubbock. A freeze is possible to the northwest, including Muleshoe, Lazbuddie, Sunnyside and Dimmitt.
TOMORROW: The clouds will likely hang around to the east, off of the Caprock, keeping it cooler in this part of our area. Around Lubbock we expect more sunshine. The wind will gradually diminish through the day, high near 60.
WEEKEND: It may drop to a freeze in Lubbock Saturday morning, with a freeze likely for area NW of the city. For the afternoon it'll be mostly cloudy and cool, high in the 50s. There is a slight chance for rain Saturday. More than anything it'll be cloudy, it doesn't look like this will bring soaking or widespread downpours.
The rain potential for Sunday is trending lower, though we still can't rule out a few isolated storms popping up. It'll be mild and breezy, high near 75.
NEXT WEEK: We're starting to see better signs of storms Monday rather than Sunday. But it still isn't anything that looks too promising. Typical for this time of year, plenty of wind next week with a gradual warming trend.
Have a great rest of your day. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast posted here early tomorrow.
