MIDLAND, Texas — After a very cold Wednesday, temps are warming up nicely this afternoon. We've got plenty of sunshine and high temps are rising to the upper 50s and 60s, near average for early December. Temps will be slower to fall tonight, but you'll still need a jacket or coat if you have outdoor plans. We'll be in the 50s much of the evening, falling into the 40s by 8-9 pm. Overnight lows will dip into the low 40s. 

With southwest winds picking up to 15-25 mph Friday afternoon, temperatures will rise quickly. High temps will get all the way to the mid to upper 70s across much of West Texas. Don't get used to the warm weather though, because another cold front will move through on Saturday, sending high temps back to the mid-50s. A few rain showers are possible Saturday night and into Sunday, but the best chances will stay north, in the panhandle. 

We'll quickly warm up again to the 60s on Sunday and back into the 70s by Monday & Tuesday. By the middle of next week, temps will fall back to the 60s and we'll have a chance of a few showers. Low temperatures will stay well above average, in the 40s and 50s. Stay tuned for updates!
