Temperatures were a few degrees warmer than yesterday as the cloud cover increased overnight. We look to stay partly to mostly cloudy next few days. For today it will be chilly with temperatures only climbing to near 45. Though we are cloudy no precipitation is expected, but northeast wind stays breezy through the early afternoon 12-20mph.
TONIGHT: Clouds continue to stay locked into place with morning temperatures in the 30s. If we get some clearing to our northern counties lower 30s will be possible.
WEDNESDAY: An upper level system off the coast of California will keep a stream of Pacific moisture pushing across our region. This will bring a chance for light rain in the morning hours then clearing to the east though the early afternoon. Better chances for this rain looks to be south of HWY 114, though some sprinkles may move just north of Lubbock. Totals likely less than a tenth for much of the South Plains.
EXTENDED: Another day with light rain possible with on and off showers Thursday with a cold front to our north. This front looks to clear the rain early Friday. Plus drop highs around 10 degree Friday afternoon. This weekend highs return to the 60s with increasing clouds. There may be additional rainfall for this weekend, but a difference in long range models keeping the forecast dry for now.
