Rain is gone for the next several days which means great weather ahead for our Easter weekend.

Winds will turn sharply toward the northwest behind the passing cold front, and our temperatures will begin to dive. Easter sunrise, 7:35 in Lubbock, will be mostly cloudy and chilly with a low in the 40s.

On Sunday: "Mostly sunny.Seasonable but blustery Sunday.Gusts up to 35 miles an hour". We're seeing partly sunny conditions overhead giving us that filtered sun look.

That cold front will bring gusty winds beginning Saturday night. The front is weakening due to the southerly winds and a high pressure system off the Atlantic Coast.

Winds will increase quickly, and quite drastically out of the southwest by midday. Friday should be a bit warmer with highs in the lower 70s while Saturday could be cooler with highs in the 60s. It will be cool for Thursday, but warmer weather is expected for Friday. The first half of the weekend will feature highs in the mid-70s, but by the second half, we will be on either side of 80°!
