Freezing Fog possible through Sunday morning; Cold temperatures continue

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -Freezing fog is possible across the South Plains viewing area during the overnight hours and Sunday morning.

Since fog is moisture, it can create a thick layer of ice on your windshield and create slippery spots on area roadways as humidity levels approach 100 percent.

Bridges and overpasses may become icy in some areas due to freezing fog across the area late Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Overnight lows will fall into the lower and middle 20’s across the region. Wind chills may drop as low as 15 to 20 degrees for the Lubbock area by sunrise.

Low clouds and freezing fog are possible Sunday morning. Skies should remain partly to mostly cloudy throughout the day.

High temperatures in Lubbock may hold in the middle to upper 30’s. With a little sunshine, we could warm into the lower and middle 40’s. Winds become east during the afternoon which favors more clouds than sunshine.

A few models are suggesting light snow could develop towards Muleshoe and Clovis, NM Sunday. The western Texas Panhandle may also see some snow to our north and west. Most of the South Plains should miss out on this system.

Sunday night remains overcast with fog possible again. Freezing fog may redevelop by daybreak Monday with lows in the 20’s.

Sunshine finally returns Monday with warmer daytime highs in the upper 40’s to near 50 degrees.

Another significant cold front arrives late in the work week Thursday night or Friday morning with a slight chance of precipitation next weekend.
