KWES afternoon WX - VOD - clipped version

(KWES) - The week of February 18 will start off with some chilly temperatures in the Permian Basin, so make sure you bundle up.

Monday, temperatures struggled to reach mid 40s in the Permian Basin, but Tuesday will see even colder temperatures. Through the morning, temperatures will be around freezing and will only warm up to the low 40s in Midland. The northern Permian Basin might struggle to get out of the mid 30s.

There is also a chance of sleet, freezing rain, and wintry mix Tuesday, especially in southeast New Mexico and north of I-20 in the Permian Basin. Drivers should be aware of possibly hazardous road conditions, particularly on overpasses, which are more likely to freeze or become slick.

Most of the Trans-Pecos and eastern counties could see a light cold rain, but should remain above freezing.

The second half of the week looks warmer with temperatures nearing 70 on Friday.
