Officials in NO are weather aware of the possibility of strong storms

Tuesday will be sunny with low humidity and afternoon temperatures in the low to mid 70s.

After a warm and handsome Saturday in the low 80s, we have made it to our First Alert Day. Nighttime temperatures will be in the middle 50s amid blustery south winds sustained at 25 to 30 miles per hour, gusting up to 45 miles per hour and potentially higher in a few storms. For that region around Winner, Mission, and Murdo, highs will only get into the low to mid 30s. We'll cool back into the middle 40s for Wednesday and Thursday morning. The American and European forecast models show thunderstorm chances returning on Friday to the area.

The line of storms has departed Alabama, bringing our risk of severe weather to a close.

Clearing should begin late evening or night with a sharp drop in temperatures by Sunday morning. We'll keep an eye on things.

One of the best ways to monitor the weather where you live and receive those severe weather alerts is through our FREE WTXL First Alert Weather app on all your Apple and Android mobile devices.

We will continue to update this story as the forecast changes. "As of Saturday evening, 1.07" of rain has fallen in Lubbock at the airport in 2018. A light freeze is expected in most areas. Highs for Sunday will be in the mid 80s with windy conditions.

Valley winds wont be as strong as last week, but may still clock in at around 25 miles per hour. Northwesterly wind in the morning will shift to the southwest in the afternoon 5-10 miles per hour.

Skies will certainly clear Saturday night with breezy and sharply cooler conditions likely through Sunday morning. Friday looks nice with a mostly sunny sky and highs in the mid 70s.

It will be VERY breezy; winds of 15-25 miles per hour with higher gusts will be capable of knocking down weakened tree limbs.
