Cold, wintry weather returns to the South Plains

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Sunday afternoon arctic cold front will send temperatures dropping Sunday evening. A few communities on the Rolling Plains will spent Sunday below freezing, with the rest falling below 32 degrees by 7 p.m.

Further west, the cold front will have made it to near the state line by midnight. Behind it, temperatures will fall to the freezing mark by 9 p.m. in Lubbock.

Clouds will also increase and lower behind the front late Sunday. Patchy fog will become widespread and dense after sunset. As temperatures fall below 32 degrees, fog will turn to freezing fog and freezing drizzle. Significant ice accumulations are not expected. Nonetheless, even trace amounts of ice accumulation on bridges and overpasses could create localized travel problems.

The cold air will stick around into the work week. High temperatures will stay in the upper 20's and 30's Monday afternoon, with wind chills in the 10's and 20's.

A better chance of showers and light wintry accumulations will arrive Monday night and Tuesday. Travel could become hazardous Tuesday morning.
