Rainy weekend, snowy Monday in forecast

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The South Plains should expect fog and drizzle through midnight Friday and watch out for ice on isolated areas like bridges and overpasses.

Temperatures will warm slowly overnight, so the chance of morning icing is remote for Lubbock. The chance for rain will increase after midnight, then end Saturday around 10-11 a.m.

Saturday afternoon should be partly cloudy with temperatures reaching a high of 50.

Areas along the New Mexico border can expect a rain, freezing rain and snow mix through Saturday morning, causing travel problems from Muleshoe to Morton into the Panhandle.

Saturday night will be much colder with a low in the low 20s, reaching only in the mid-30s Sunday, with an increasing chance for snow Sunday night into Monday.

Accumulations are likely for most of the region by Monday morning, especially in western areas where several inches may occur.
