Colder air settling in, but what of the talk of snow?

This will combine with a light wind and very dry air to allow Thursday night lows to dip well into the 20s for most of the area. Rainfall totals going back to Tuesday night were not that impressive with pretty much everyone picking up less than a half of an inch.

The best chance of snow is over southeastern MA through early Saturday night. Winds W/NW 5-10 miles per hour. It is a colder day in the middle and upper 30s.

Temperatures will struggle to get out of the 30s Thursday and wind chills won't get out of the 20s.

We'll have a sunny, cold Sunday. The atmosphere is cold enough to support snow, and if the moisture coming up the coast creeps far enough to the west (20 percent chance), a few conversational flakes could flutter into the area later in the afternoon. It'll be a cold day with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Morning lows will slowly warm through cold 20s. Even a little snow can cause some issues on the roads.

Looking likely that most of the Arklatex could stay totally dry during the next seven days. That blast of cold air looks even colder than what will settle in for the weekend.

Then later in the weekend, as in Saturday night or Sunday morning, a clipper low pressure system will move down from the Great Lakes and track just north of the area. Some minor accumulation will be possible by Saturday morning.

Roadways in southern Lubbock County and counties south of Lubbock will be wet due to light amounts of precipitation expected to continue through Wednesday evening. Highs in the upper 30s. So there's a chance of some rain and snow in the midweek forecast to account for this possibility, although remember no major storms are in sight. WE can see some minor accumulations from U.S. 24 northward, and even a coating with some snow showers down toward I-70.
