LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Overnight a strong cold front began blowing through the viewing area, moving in from the Panhandle and pushing rapidly south toward the Permian Basin.

While highs yesterday (Lubbock 80°) were about 15 degrees above the average for the date (that's 64°F), afternoon highs today will be about 25 degrees below the average.

Additionally, the high for the day (all 24 hours) is 62 degrees, recorded just past midnight (last night). The low for the day (all 24 hours) will occur as midnight (tonight) approaches, rather than the typical just after sunrise. Also the wind will remain strong, especially this morning, dropping Lubbock area wind chills into the 20s.

Light showers, mostly rain, still look likely to dot the area today, with a better chance tonight and tomorrow. While most of these showers will be light some areas, especially east of the Caprock, may receive a quarter inch or more of precipitation. This morning's data still point to less than a tenth of an inch (liquid equivalent) most areas on the Caprock, including Lubbock, today through tomorrow.
