A winter storm continues to track through the central U.S., pushing arctic air into the South Plains with temperatures much below normal, strong winds and a potential for some travel problems.
Icy roadways could occur early Thursday and again Friday morning with a combination of light freezing drizzle, or freezing rain and some sleet and snow.
Thursday morning will be cold with a low of 21 and the afternoon high will range from 26-30 degrees in Lubbock. Friday morning lows could fall into the 10-15 degree range.
If you're headed for the DFW area a winter storm warning is in effect. That region of the state could be impacted by freezing rain, sleet and snow from late Thursday into Friday.
This is an extended bout of cold weather so be prepared for temperatures to remain below freezing through Sunday morning.
Lubbock and surrounding counties remain under a Winter Storm Watch.
