Hello everyone and good Friday afternoon to you.
After a breezy day with highs in the 60s and 70s, we'll cool down quite a bit this evening with the passage of the next front.
A few rain showers will move in to the northwest section of the Texas Panhandle before midnight but colder air will be heading in quickly, to turn that moisture to light snow overnight. We're looking for 1 to 2 inches of snow from Dalhart to Guymon to Liberal by Saturday afternoon, and less than half an inch of snow here in Amarillo in the same time frame.
There will be slick spots on the road ways in the morning time, with temperatures falling near the freezing mark, and below further north.
Please take extra time to get where you're going in the morning.
The wind will also be a factor, blowing 20 to 25 miles-per-hour and gusting to 30.
The snow clears out later on in the day, and though the clouds will hang around, highs will reach the 40s and 50s, to melt some of the snow.
Daylight Saving Time begins Saturday night, so make sure to set your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed tomorrow.
Sunday, we'll see warmer conditions return, with 60s in the afternoon, then we're heating up to 70s and 80s on Monday.
Our next cool down is Wednesday with just a slim shot at a mixture of rain and snow.
Have a great night and a wonderful weekend!
