Warm and breezy today, Red Flag Warning from 1-9PM

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Starting out this Monday morning with some milder temperatures than we had over the weekend. 

TODAY: Stronger wind returning with warmer temperatures. Red Flag Warning will be in effect from 1-9PM. No outdoor burning and  be careful with anything that can cause a spark. Like we seen last week, a fire can quickly spread over a large area putting people and structures in danger.
 

TONIGHT: Low near 56, staying breezy with a mostly clear sky.

TUESDAY: High near 91, extreme fire concerns as the wind will be stronger 20-30mph.

EXTENDED: Cold front will drop highs to the 70s through the rest of the week. Good news is we have a chance for storms starting Thursday night and continuing into the early parts of Saturday. We will get a better idea of these storms in the coming days. Cooler into the weekend with strong wind Friday and Saturday. 

Join us on Good Day Lubbock until 9AM, Matt will have the next update tonight on the News at Nine. Have a great Monday!

It's hard to farm if you're not somewhat optimistic, but this is certainly testing our patience, testing ...
