Cooler next few days, rain possible Friday

Posted: Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: It's warm and sunny with 80s across most of the area, 90s east off of the Caprock. Next cold front is in Kansas, headed south. It'll bring cooler weather here next few days. Meanwhile, there is a risk for severe storms downstate, including San Antonio and Austin.

TONIGHT: Partly cloudy, low near 49. Wind NE/E 5-15mph.

TOMORROW: Cooler than the past few days, but certainly not a cold day. High near 71 in Lubbock, 60s east and northeast of the city. Wind E/SE 10-16mph.

There will be more clouds tomorrow and possibly a few sprinkles, but not much is expected in terms of measurable rainfall.

NEXT FEW DAYS: It will turn colder Friday, high near 63. Wind breezy out of the E/SE 12-20mph.

It'll be cloudy with a chance for a shower or storm. Overall coverage of the rain probably won't be too great across the area.

With another disturbance passing overhead, we have a slight chance for a shower or storm Saturday. By the afternoon it should turn dry and breezy in Lubbock Saturday, with the storm chance shifting east, over the Rolling Plains. Farther east and southeast some severe storms are possible Saturday...again, well east of Lubbock.

NEXT WEEK: Easter Sunday will see a cold front moving across the area. The timing is still in question. Right now we expect a lot of sun with the high in the low 70s, but if the front gets here by early afternoon, it won't get that warm.

That front will be a strong one, with colder weather Monday and Tuesday. There is a slight chance for showers early Monday, which could even have some snow mixed in to the north of Lubbock.

There's a good chance for a freeze across much of the area Tuesday morning. The average final freeze of the season in Lubbock is April 9 (tomorrow), while the average final freeze at Dimmitt is April 22 and to the southeast at Aspermont it's March 28, according to the NWS.

Have a great rest of your day and stay safe. Bobby will have a full update to the forecast posted here early tomorrow.
