Blast of arctic air may bring snow Thursday morning

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A blast of arctic air will roll across the South Plains Wednesday night, dropping temperatures to the teens Thursday morning. Some light snow/flurries may arrive in the morning, but accumulations are not expected.

It will be a windy and very cold day as highs will remain in the 20s through the afternoon, clearing Friday morning as lows could fall into the single digits and low teens through the area. Friday afternoon will be sunny and warmer.

If you're headed toward the hill country of South Texas this arctic front will bring a chance of sleet, freezing rain and snow, possibly one to two inches of the white stuff.

There will be travel problems in the areas from south of San Angelo to San Antonio to Austin from Thursday evening into Friday mid-day.
