Warm days, chilly nights expected
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - This is the week of the Panhandle South Plains Fair. Rarely is the weather better than it is this year for the entire Fair.
Usually, weather for most of the Fair remains pleasant. Often, on at least one day and night, the weather turns inclement. Too hot, too cold, too windy, or rainy.
This year will be an exception. Not too hot, not too cold, not too windy, and dry.
Days will be warm and nights cool. Winds generally will be light. Days generally will be sunny and nights generally clear.
For the end of September and the start of October, this weekend, our early mornings will be chilly. Lows will be in the 50s.
Afternoons and early evenings will be warm. Highs will be in the mid- to upper 80s.
The only chance of rain, and it is very slight, is over the far northwestern viewing area late today and again late Wednesday. This is the Friona and Bovina area.

Equinox Sun Glare
For approximately two weeks before and after an equinox the sun rises nearly due east and sets nearly due west. This creates a potential blinding glare for drivers heading east in the morning and those heading west in the evening.
The Fall Equinox this year is September 22. It is also known as the September Equinox and the Autumnal Equinox.
You can minimize the glare with a clean windshield inside and out. Have polarizing sunglasses handy. And adjust your drive time slightly to avoid the worst of the glare.
