Thursday forecast: Coldest day of the season so far

Thursday forecast: Coldest day of the season so far

Light snow and rain has been spotted in and around the city of Lubbock but we have no accumulation of snow to report. High temperatures Thursday should be in the mid 40s, but one of those reinforcing shots of cold air should settle in for Friday leading to highs not getting out of the 30s for many. A thin layer of frost is likely to be on your windshield this morning. However when it's as cold as it's going to be today any wind at all will produce a wind chill. Morning lows Wednesday plummet to the lower 20s.

The wind chill will be a factor all day. Interestingly enough, the high temperatures for Wednesday have technically already occurred. Clouds will begin to increase early in the day. Overnight lows will continue to dip well down into the 20s.

Cold temperatures will stick around even through the weekend, although with clearing we should see afternoon highs struggling into the 60s. High pressure at the surface, coupled with a dry cold airmass will allow temperatures to drop in the 20s once again.

Precipitation will move north and west off the ocean later Saturday afternoon.

Trump Jr. says he talked to Hope Hicks about meeting
Instead, Trump Jr. said he was speaking to White House aide Hope Hicks about how to respond to the reports. Veselnitskaya says Trump pressed her for written evidence of malfeasance by Clinton during the meeting.

Northwest flow aloft pushes several cold fronts through and another will pass through on Saturday. It is this system that looks to bring our first chance of some light accumulations to Kentucky.

Today with plenty of sunshine highs will only reach the low-mid 30s.

The cold is here to stay for a bit. This morning we're looking at widespread rains with some moderate to heavy downpours and temperatures in the mid 40s. While Monday looks dry, it looks like we could have another snowy scenario on our hands by the middle of the week.

With just 20 days until Christmas, the First Alert 5 team is already tracking our chances to see snow when the big day arrives.
