Trick or treat forecast pleasant, mild

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Mild weather coming up today, very seasonable. The average high is 73 degrees, and that is my forecast for today. Skies will be sunny, winds reasonable (South 5-15, occasionally 10-20 MPH this afternoon).

This Halloween evening will be mild with dry and mostly fair skies. Winds will not be much of a factor at around 10 MPH (from the south). Lubbock area temperatures will range from about 69 degrees at 6 PM to 59 degrees at 9 PM.

Tomorrow will be warmer, then Wednesday colder following a strong cold front. I expect the wind will bring some blowing dust, but I don't expect a repeat of the 1950s-style dust storm of a couple weeks ago. Then again, I also don't expect rain, at least nothing significant.

Another strong front will blow through this weekend. Currently it looks like late Saturday morning. Some dust, no rain.

Lubbock will close out October with 1.34 inches of precipitation, which includes a trace of snow. The average for October is 1.92 inches.

For the year the precipitation total is 4.08 inches. This is a distressing 13.42 inches below Lubbock's Year-To-Date average, and still well behind the record driest year of 1917 with 8.73".
