Zero or below zero wind chills possible Monday night

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Meteorologist Cary Allen was revising his First Alert Forecast for Lubbock late Monday morning.  But the final conclusion either way is bitterly cold.  His forecast calls for higher winds Monday afternoon with steady temperatures until the sun goes down.  After that temperatures plummet into the teens by Midnight with wind chills somewhere around zero.  As temperatures continue to fall overnight, the wind dies down leaving wind chills at about zero. 

"Morning lows could be 10 to 14 in Lubbock," Allen says.  Overnight cloud cover is possible, which would keep the overnight lows in the teens. 

"Precipitation is much of an issue," Allen also says.  He thinks we might see some light flurries in the viewing area but the real issue is the cold.  He advises that Monday night and the next few nights that follow, homeowners might want to take action to protect pipes from freezing and bursting.

There has been some snow north of Amarillo with this winter storm.  Dumas, for example, recorded half an inch.
