Another upper level system will move just to the south of the city and leave a chance of rain/snow from Midland east to Snyder. Lubbock could see some light snow late Thursday into Friday. Lows will remain in the teens with highs only in the 30s.
Temps have made it to the 40s today thanks to plenty of sun.
