LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Storms will move across the northern South Plains Thursday night through Friday morning, exiting the region in early afternoon.

As storms move out of the area, sunny skies will return and allow temps to increase in the afternoon. Westerly winds will follow the storms, increasing to 15-25 mph. Daytime temps will climb to the low 80s in the central and western South Plains.

While the region will have some warm temps on Friday, it will be jacket weather by Saturday morning.

A strong cold front will move into the area early Friday evening with winds from the north at 20-30 mph. Those winds will usher in much colder temps and by Saturday morning lows will dip to near 40 degrees in Lubbock with some 30s in the northern South Plains.

When you add clouds and winds of 20-30 mph wind chill temps will be in the upper 20s and to low 30s, so bundle up if you're out early Saturday.

Winds will diminish in the afternoon Saturday, but daytime highs will only reach the 60s to low 70s with partly sunny skies.

It will be a cold Sunday morning and a mild afternoon.
