Saturday night a strong cold front and winter storm system will move into New Mexico leading to lows in the 20s by Saturday morning in Lubbock. Clouds and a northeast wind will keep the weekend temps, day and night very cold and below normal.

Some wintry mix and snow likely in the panhandle and possibly the northwest south plains early Sunday, but not much.

Winds on Sunday with likely be gusty as the storm system moves across the region.Monday will bring sunshine and slightly warmer temps.
