KCBD First Alert Weather Forecast 2/11/2019

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -Cold temperatures have arrived across West Texas as expected.

Overnight, two disturbances will approach West Texas.

The first disturbance will bring the risk for freezing drizzle and a light wintry mix across the southern and eastern half of the area Tuesday morning. This favors areas near Snyder, Gail, Lamesa, Jayton and Post.

Further north, light wintry precipitation in the form of freezing drizzle or freezing fog will be possible for the Lubbock area.

This may create a thin glaze of ice on area roadways Tuesday morning.

During the day, a much stronger low pressure system will track across the Texas Panhandle.

This feature will bring the risk for snow showers across the area Tuesday and Tuesday evening.

At the moment, the heaviest snowfall potential exists across the northern and northwestern half of the viewing area into the Texas Panhandle.

Further south, snowfall totals and snowfall potential should be lower.

All areas will have a chance of wintry precipitation over the next 24 hours.

The temperatures will be very cold overnight with lows in the lower to middle 20’s. Lows across the northwestern South Plains could drop into the teens.

Tuesday remains very cold under mostly cloudy skies. Highs remain in the upper 20’s to lower 30’s.

We dry out Wednesday with warmer daytime highs in the 40’s and 50’s.
