Good Thursday morning folks. As we near the weekend, temperatures are on the way down.
This morning, winds are coming from the north as a dry cold front pushes across the area. We'll be mostly cloudy today warming up to the upper 40s to the mid 50s, but we'll have to wait for an upper-level low to bring rain starting tomorrow morning.
Friday will be wet and cold, with showers in the morning, slowly shifting to snow throughout the day, with mostly snow in our western counties, and mostly rain to the southeast. We'll have a mixture here in Amarillo before precipitation becomes all snow by the evening. Day time temperatures will reach the 30s and 40s tomorrow.
On Saturday, we'll continue with snow before a few areas warm up enough to make the shift back to rain. Overall, we can expect a few inches of snow across much of the Texas Panhandle, with higher amounts to the west.
By Sunday, the sky clears out with breezy north winds and highs returning to the upper 30s and 40s, but warmer conditions take over next week.
Enjoy your day!
