Icy roads possible throughout weekend

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Early this morning our Super Doppler was indicating very spotty, very light, showers. Temperatures are cold enough for any precipitation to create icy spots, a potential travel hazard.

Even a small chance in any one of a number of factors will change the amount and type of precipitation, but a light glaze is possible across much of the Caprock. A National Weather Service issued Freezing Rain Advisory is in effect for all of the South Plains as well as adjacent areas of the Rolling Plains until 6 p.m. today.

The area north and northwest of Lubbock - due to its greater elevation - is most likely to experience hazardous travel conditions, but poor road conditions are possible at times across much of the South Plains Friday through Saturday morning.

Saturday temperatures will climb above freezing area-wide, but Saturday night another surge of cold air will blow in, changing any moisture that remains to ice.
