Freezing temperatures lead to warmer weekend for the South Plains

Thursday going into Friday will be near average in temperature, compared to Thursday’s freezing temperatures from a reinforcing shot of Canadian air.

 

The breezy, northwesterly winds will cause a fire danger going into Friday afternoon.

“Here at Lubbock we’re going to be at 20 to 25 miles for winds,” said meteorologist Charles Aldrich with the National Weather Service in Lubbock.

He said the humidity will be around 23 percent — which is why the fire danger will be in effect. A fire danger is mainly for anyone planning to do a controlled burn, said Aldrich.

“(The fire danger) is just basically saying if you don’t have to, don’t burn,” he said.

He said Thursday going into Saturday will warm to around 54 to 55 degrees, 60 degrees Saturday and 66 degrees on Sunday.
