Spring typically means changes in our weather over short periods of time. These typically are initiated by cold fronts. Such is the case between yesterday and today. Such again will be the case late this week and early next week.
A mix of clouds and sun, gusty winds, and warmth, will bring us in West Texas our warmest weather in at least five months this afternoon. A cold front will follow tonight. Another cold front will end our work week. And a third cold front affects our weather late in the weekend and early next week.
A clear and cold start in the KCBD viewing area this morning. Some spots dropped to freezing or below, and patchy frost was likely. We will be shaking off the cold in the days ahead, which includes Easter. Oh, Lubbock water restrictions begin today.

Much welcome relief from the wind and dust today. Along with a mostly sunny sky and seasonably mild temperatures it will be a pleasant afternoon and early evening. Details for today and our next chance of precipitation are in this story.
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.

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.
