LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) – Generally balmy conditions underline this week’s weather. Nights and mornings will remain cold, but not as cold as what hit the region late last week. Afternoon temps will be in the 50s to 60s, at least during the work week.

After lows in the teens and 20s this morning, temperatures will peak in the 50s this afternoon. It will be fine with a light breeze. Not bad for early February.

A thrill will return just in time to kick off the weekend. Highs in the 40s will be common in the KCBD viewing area on Saturday. It will be accompanied by a brisk – cold breeze if you are outside and not dressed for it.

Our forecast for the weekend, at least for now, is dry. I’m looking at a few things that might change that perspective. Keep an eye on that and more with our 10-day forecast here on our weather page and in our KCBD weather app – free from your app or play store.
