Light snow or wintry mix through morning

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

THIS AFTERNOON: We've had some light rain and snow around Lubbock and parts of the South Plains past few hours. And by amount hardly noticeable. Also, the ground is warm and the air temp is still in the lower 40s. All this shows the evening drive into tonight will be fine. Roads may get wet, you may need to slow down. But you can keep the snow shovel hiding somewhere in the garage.

local temperature?

TONIGHT: We expect some light bands of precipitation to continue through Wednesday morning. This will probably be snow closer to Lubbock, with a mix of rain and snow possible farther east. Amounts should be light, though we can't rule out a few isolated bands totaling more than an inch. It won't cover all of the area, some of us will miss the showers completely.

There might be a few icy bridges for the morning commute. Still, this is all minor. Low temp tonight near 27, light NW wind.

This is not going to reverse the dry trend of the past couple of months, actual moisture amount will be limited.

WEDNESDAY: The sky will gradually clear from north to south, with some sun by the afternoon. High in Lubbock near 44. There is a chance for some more light wintry mix farther south into the afternoon, from Hobbs to Snyder and points south. At this point the more significant snow amounts are expected tomorrow into Thursday across the mountains of SW Texas.

SUNNY DAYS: It'll stay cold Thursday, high in the mid 40s despite a mostly sunny sky. This weekend will turn warmer, back in the 60s. There aren't any signs of rain or snow through middle of next week.
