Spring-like weekend expected

Rain/snow tonight followed by sun Thursday.

  KCBD-area rain and snow

Rain and snow return to the KCBD viewing area today. It is quite a reversal from yesterday's pleasant afternoon. The change, however, will be short-lived. A quick warm up will follow.

  Your Weekend Outlook

Warm weather just in time for spring to begin.

  It’s the last day of winter

We’re expecting another quiet day across the South Plains today, with sunshine and light wind.

  Another chilly start for the South Plains

Cold Nights, Warmer Afternoons

  Much quieter day across Texas

From the Panhandle’s blizzard yesterday, to Lubbock’s dust and wind, to the storms in east Texas, today will be a much quieter day across the Lone Star State.

  Winds over 60mph across the South Plains on Wednesday

We’ve been dealing with strong winds since Tuesday night, tied to a powerful storm system that produced a blizzard over the Panhandle on Wednesday morning and is driving a severe outbreak in the Deep South.

  A little bit of everything across the state

In the Panhandle, Blizzard Storm Warnings are in effect. Across the South Plains is a mix of Wind Advisories and High Wind Warnings, the latter being the case for Lubbock.

Spring, Fall and Winter in 24 hours!

Fire Danger, Blizzard conditions and colder through tomorrow.

  Wind to pick up going into Wednesday

Winds today will actually start off not too bad. But by this afternoon, they’ll gradually start to increase.

Warmer & Windier

Another Windy Cold Front

  Calmer weather returns to forecast

After a weekend of active weather, we’ll get back to the West Texas standard of quite a bit of sun and a little bit of wind. We’ll be in the 70s today and tomorrow, and the 60s for the rest of the week.

  High winds, no storms expected Sunday

More wind, cooler and no severe storms in the forecast.

  Strong storms generate tornadoes east of Lubbock on Saturday

Stay with us on air and online for another night of severe weather across the South Plains.

  Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues after tornado touchdown Friday evening

A night of severe storms began with a brief tornado touchdown northwest of Shallowater on Friday evening at 5:35 p.m.

  Thunderstorms possible throughout this weekend

Our first spring like chance of thunderstorms will be today, followed by the possibility of another round tomorrow.

  Strong storms possible Friday, Saturday

As moisture returns and combines with an approaching storm system I expect storms and showers to spread across the region Friday and Saturday.

Isolated showers/storms possible Thursday night

We’ve seen a good bit of sunshine, helping to push the temperature into the mid to upper 70s. It’s a bit cooler to the northeast of Lubbock. The air is dry now, but that will change pretty quickly tonight.

  Less Wind, Increasing Rain Chances

Storm Chances Increasing by weekend

  Spring wind, warmth, and storms

Over the next few days and nights, the potential for thunderstorms in the KCBD viewing area will increase. Ahead of any rain, however, a high wildfire danger with high winds and very warm high temperatures.

Wildfire Danger Wednesday

More Wind, Heat and Fire Danger

  Thunderstorms late this week

Whether or not you are enjoying our Spring-like weather, there's more of it on the way. It may get more Spring-like with a chance of thunderstorms in my forecast.

  More warmth, more wind

More Spring-like weather on the way. Typically, that means some windy days and a chance of thunderstorms. NO BURN weather conditions return this afternoon and are expected through most of this week.

  A slightly warmer repeat Sunday

As we approach the weekend, the temperature cools a bit, and we may see a few isolated showers.

  Less wind, but cooler

TODAY: High of 61°, SE 5-15mph, mostly sunny

Less Windy, More Warmth

A Warmer Weekend

  Wind relief on the way, but first...

More wind and dust today, but relief - though brief - is on the way. If you get the chance, enjoy the afternoon sunshine. We may not see much of it next week.

More Wind and Cooler

Winds Bring a Chill to the Region

Spring: Ready or not

If you've been waiting on Spring weather, or not, you are going to get it today. Warmth, wind, blowing dust, an elevated grassland fire danger, a cold front, and possibly a few light showers. All in less than 24 hours.

  Spring warmth, wind, showers

Yesterday afternoon was quite mild. Today's will be too. On the way, however, is a cold front. Ahead of the front another day or two of above-average temperatures. But the front will bring more than just cooler air.

Spring is Coming, along with the Wind

More Sun, Wind and Warmth

  Spring weather pattern

A very spring-like pattern for the South Plains this week. Temperatures will climb well-above average ahead of the next cold front. We may even hear some thunder.

Sun and Warmth Returning

Sun, Warmth and Wind Return

  Wintry reminder for the South Plains

Meteorologically, this is the first day of Spring. Snow and other wintry precipitation, however, has been falling this morning in the KCBD viewing area. Much more spring-like weather is knocking on the door.

  Some snow possible Monday morning

Expect increasing clouds overnight. Monday will be the chilliest and cloudiest before we’re back to sunshine and warmth.

  Cooler air on the way Saturday night

A cold front will pass through the area Saturday night.

  Sun, clouds, gusty winds on warmer Saturday

Weekend Outlook

  Much above average highs!

Once again, weather today will be quite different than the day before. This time though, instead of dropping, temperatures will be climbing. However, the cold front I’ve mentioned the past few days remains on track to pass through the KCBD viewing area this weekend.

  Warmer Weather Coming

Cold Morning with Warmer Afternoon

  Gray, chilly, and possibly damp

Quite a change to a generally gray, chilly, and damp afternoon. Or if not actually damp, a damp feel. It will be followed by quite a warmup before the arrival of a cold front this weekend.

Another Cold Front and Rain??

Cold and Wet, then Windy and Warmer

  Much cooler today, colder tomorrow

It was like a visit from Spring. Somewhat windy with a seasonably very warm afternoon yesterday. Now a reminder that it's still winter. Highs from Tuesday to Thursday will drop as much as 35 to 40 degrees. Plus, there's a chance of precipitation.

  Another chill ahead, but not as dramatic

Just last Tuesday, the high temperature in Lubbock was 15°. Today, we reached 79°. As a cold front moves through tonight however, temperatures will begin to drop again. This time it won’t be as intense, and it won’t be as long.

  Spring-like today, then winter reminder

Today's weather will be very Spring-like, but quickly followed by a reminder that the season is still Winter. Following today's well-above average temperatures, a cold front will drop our highs nearly 40 degrees by Thursday. Accompanying the drop, a slight chance of showers.
