A Taste of Spring

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As the nation's overall weather pattern shifts, the cold air that has been so prevalent is retreating to the north. At least for awhile. Locally, that means not-so-cold mornings, and some comfortable afternoon temperatures.

This morning's low was 12 degrees at the Lubbock airport. The average is 28. The record is 6 degrees recorded February 11 in both 1962 and 1916.

This afternoon will be sunny with light winds, and warmer, with a high of 53 degrees. The average is 57.

Tonight will be clear and cold, with a low of 19 degrees.
