LUBBOCK, Texas (KLBK) – Here is your updated forecast from the KLBK First Warning Weather Center:
Quiet weather has been in place across the South and Rolling Plains on this Saturday, other than the continued haze. The hazy conditions will continue as smoke from the wildfires across the western portions of the country continues to stream over the region in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Lows tonight will be in the lower 50s across the region, with lower to middle 80s expected for highs on Sunday.
Upper level smoke streaming across the South and Rolling Plains will keep hazy conditions in place over the extended forecast period. At this point, I don’t see any precipitation chances in the forecast over the next seven days.
Daytime highs will be in the lower to middle 80s on Sunday. It’ll be a few degrees cooler on Monday and Tuesday with lower 80s expected. We’ll start a warming trend by mid to late week with middle 80s expected. By next Saturday, upper 80s will return for high temperatures.
Low temperatures Sunday and Monday morning will be in the lower 50s. Middle 50s are expected Tuesday through Thursday mornings. Upper 50s return by Friday and Saturday mornings.
