Thursday into Friday will be interesting across the South Plains. Our next weather system will arrive in to the region. Highs will only top out in the lower 40s on Thursday. As precipitation begins, it could start off as a wintry mix. A wintry mix will remain possible through the day on Thursday, into the morning hours of Friday. Some minor accumulations will be possible, but this should remain well to the north and west of Lubbock. We will keep a close eye on this system, and we will keep you advised.
