LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - More sun, warmth, and wind before the next cold front arrives. It will bring a chance of strong to severe storms to parts of the KCBD viewing area.

Well ahead of the front today, a few thin, high clouds, otherwise sunny with a breezy and very warm afternoon. Temperatures will peak in the 80s, about 10 to 15 degrees above average for late October. The south-southeast wind will increase to about 10 to 20 mph.

Few thin, high clouds but otherwise sunny, breezy, and very warm this afternoon.

Our area won’t be quite as chilly tonight as low-level moisture returns to the area. Lows will range from the mid-50s in the northwestern viewing area to the mid-60s in the southeast.

Low clouds are likely to return near or just after sunrise tomorrow morning. By late morning and continuing through the afternoon our skies will be mostly sunny.
