Tracking small storm Tuesday; warmer temps rest of the week

Highs will be in the middle to upper 60s. Monday will be the coolest day of the work week, with highs topping off in the upper 50s.

Wednesday: Sunny with a high near 79. But know that somewhere in the Saturday-Saturday night time frame we'll likely deal with a line of rain/storms with at least some risk for stronger activity. A few isolated areas with higher amounts are possible.

Tonight, partly cloudy and chilly. Showers and possibly strong storms will be possible Saturday with highs around 70 degrees.

That means parts of - or all of - Sunday may be warm, dry and perfectly fine, though Saturday now looks like the safest bet for a day of fun outside. Morning lows will fall into the mid 40s.

A few showers scattered showers are possible Wednesday, otherwise we'll remain dry and have one last day of milder temperatures with sunshine moving in.

Wind: Any breeze should be coming in from the south or southwest at about 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Showers and thunderstorms are very likely Friday night into Saturday morning. Watch for updates on when this system will arrive, leave, and how much rain and snow it will leave inbetween. There's still some questions on strength of the storm, as well as timing and how warm temperatures will get.

I bring good news this week with mostly dry weather and a warming trend.

It's not until early next week when we get another solid day like Monday.

Based on this morning's data, your KCBD First Alert Forecast Team does not expect measurable precipitation in or near Lubbock, or a freeze in Lubbock Saturday or Sunday.

While that two-day reprieve from the cold will be a welcome feeling, there's still a chance for more snow on Friday as a system moves into the region.
