LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two things taking place with the clear skies overnight into Friday for the South Plains.

First of all clear and cold will start the day allowing for scattered frost over the region and a possible first freeze for the city. In addition the clear skies will allow good viewing for the Taurid meteor showers which will have higher activity through Saturday morning with another round in less than a week.

The Taurid meteors have been active since September and will continue until late November, but the best days for most activity are November 4,5; 11 and 12th. As you might guess the best time for viewing will be from midnight to sunrise.

As we move into Friday plenty of sun and light winds will allow daytime highs to return to the 60s.

There is another cold front moving in Friday night that will mean that nighttime lows remain in the 30s through Monday morning.

Also the daytime highs on Saturday and Sunday will be chilly compared to our 80s earlier this week staying in the 50s over the weekend.

Some clouds over the weekend but rain is not in the forecast.

Remember to protect those plants the next few mornings.
