Easter Sunday morning is looking like it will be fantastic, although, slightly cooler then average. This afternoon, things change. A front will start to move through the South Plains, so we’ll see those winds start to increase, maybe even with some isolated gusts upwards of 40 mph.
As we go through the evening hours Wednesday, we will see the event begin as rain, but as temperatures cool off and warm air moves in over us, we could see that switch over to freezing rain in the central South Plains.
emperatures continue to be at or just a bit below average for this time of year. And it’s been nice to have a break from the humidity as well. Weather will stay fairly status quo as we go through the weekend, with one change.
Thunderstorms will continue across the central and eastern South Plains for the next few hours. These storms will continue to remain capable of severe weather, particularly strong winds and large hail.
Our Sunday will feel like the proverbial calm before the storm. Weather will be pleasant. Temperatures Seasonal. Winds not that strong. Might see an isolated shower or thunderstorm across the northwest South Plains, but those chances are less than 10%.
Sunday will be a day of change across the South Plains. Temperatures won’t be as warm as Saturday, but it won’t be freezing cold, either - with almost everyone in the 50s and places like Seagraves and Seminole maybe making it into the 60s.
Overpasses, bridges, and any other surface that’s elevated should be treated with caution, and travel is discouraged, especially during the early part of your day. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for most of the South Plains until 10am.
