A chill returns to the South Plains on Friday and will stay over the region through Sunday.

Colder air will steadily pour into the region on northeast winds into the weekend. Along with the chill comes an upper-level storm system over Mexico that will lead to increasing rain/snow chances beginning Friday night and continuing through mid-day Sunday. The greatest potential for snow and possible accumulations will be in the northwest South Plains from Morton north to Muleshoe and on into the Panhandle.

For most of the region, precipitation will begin as rain Friday evening and become mixed with snow early Saturday, continuing through the day. The greatest chance of snow and rain mix for Lubbock will occur late Saturday afternoon, but only light, if any accumulations are expected.

Due to the threat of wintry mix, the First Alert Weather days will continue on Saturday and Sunday.

Travel issues may develop in the northwest regions late Saturday into Sunday morning.

Rain and snow chances will decrease by mid day Sunday but rain will return on Monday.
