First freeze hits the South Plains - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

First freeze hits the South Plains

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

We have a winner in our First Freeze contest! We just don't know who. But we will. We have to go through a ton of entries and verify who made the best guess on the date and time of Lubbock's first official freeze of the season. The official time of the freeze, recorded at the Lubbock airport, was 4:10 AM. In newscasts this evening on KCBD NewsChannel 11 we'll announce the winner of the $5,000 shopping spree at Ashley Furniture Home Store.

In the midst of the driest year on record in Lubbock, yesterday brought a precipitation record. The airport measured 0.80 inch - a melted mix of rain, sleet, and snow - the most for any October 27. The previous record was 0.61 inch in 1969. The Lubbock precipitation record began in 1911.

This afternoon will be quite cool, but with light wind and a sunny sky, pleasant. This evening will be very chilly with temperatures in the 40s.

Tomorrow will begin with temperatures in the 30s, but the afternoon will top out near 70 degrees. Saturday evening, again, will get very chilly by the end of the Tech game.
