Lubbock ties record low for date

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

What a difference 24 hours (again can) make. Yesterday morning at 6:00 the Lubbock airport was reporting a temperature of 66°. This morning at 6:00 the airport was reporting 26° - though the strong north wind was pushing the wind chill into the low teens.

Lubbock has tied its record low for the date of 26° (2013, 1952 and 1928).  April 10 - today - is the average date of Lubbock's last Spring freeze. The average low for the date is 44° (and the average high 74°).

The airport has recorded a trace of snow, making this the 19th April since 1912 in which a trace of snow was reported. See yesterday's email for much more on April and late-season snows in Lubbock.

This morning a (NNE to SSW) band of light wintry showers, generally snow, will drift from the central South Plains to the Low Rolling Plains east of the Caprock. I expect only light accumulations, generally a dusting on grassy and raised areas. By the way, this is the band I referred to multiple times showing on our SuperDoppler HD3 during Daybreak Today this morning. Bundle up!

By noon any remaining precipitation will be exiting the viewing area to the east, but winds will still be gusty. This afternoon skies will be partly sunny, it will be chilly, but winds generally will become light.
