FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAYS: Threat of wintry weather continues this weekend

Winter weather risks this weekend Winter weather risks this weekend
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The First Alert Forecast Team is still expecting First Alert Weather Days for the South Plains Saturday and Sunday as a low pressure system moves across the area. 

Snowfall accumulations remain in question locally, but we have kept our First Alert Weather day for Saturday and Sunday to account for the threat of hazardous winter weather travel conditions across the local viewing area.  

Threats will be highest north and west of Lubbock near Muleshoe.  

The latest computer models have backed off on snowfall accumulations, but temperatures will remain close to freezing each morning on Saturday and Sunday.

Even if snowfall does not occur, we will have a threat for rain and freezing rain which could cause icing on bridges and overpasses across the area.

This remains a developing weather situation that will likely change day-to-day before computer models get a decent handle on how things will occur.

Stay tuned.

    Lower federal courts have so far agreed with opponents of the travel ban, who argue it targets Muslims in violation of federal law and the Constitution and stems from Trump's campaign pledge to halt the entry of all Muslims into the U.S.
