LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The mid-week forecast will lead to some slightly warmer temperatures for the central and southern South Plains prior to the arrival of an arctic cold front.

Lubbock will edge to the low 50s as fog dissipates ahead of the cold front. However, the front could arrive in the northern South Plains early afternoon, bringing with it winds from the north at 20 to 25 mph and much colder temperatures.

Temps will fall to the teens in Lubbock by Thursday morning and possibly into the single digits in the northern South Plains. Afternoon highs will be well below normal with afternoon temperatures staying in the 20s and 30s.

Overnight Wednesday freezing drizzle will develop and could coat windshields and surfaces through Thursday morning. Icy roads are not expected but visibilities will be low through early in the morning.

Temperatures will remain cold on Friday, although morning lows could again fall to the teens with highs in the 30s and 40s in the afternoon.
