Good Sunday evening, everybody! I hope you've had a great weekend! We made it to 63 degrees in Midland-Odessa today which is right about average for this time of year. As we go through the overnight hours, we'll be about ten degrees cooler than we were last night with lows dropping back into the middle 30s. Cloud cover won't change too much overnight so we'll remain under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

The precipitation chance for Midland-Odessa for tomorrow stays at 20%. A stray shower or two is possible as we go through the overnight hours and into tomorrow morning. However, I think most of us will stay dry. The best chance for rain is in Southeast New Mexico including Carlsbad, Jal, Eunice, and Hobbs. Morning rain showers look to shift over to a wintry mix by mid-morning. Eddy and Lea counties could even see that moisture shift completely over to snow by late morning. Little to no accumulation is expected for most of Eddy and Lea counties, however, northern Lea county could see up to an inch of snowfall tomorrow if the shift from rain to snow happens early enough in the morning.

Temps on Monday for Midland-Odessa will be in the mid-40s.

Again, I expect Midland-Odessa to stay dry tomorrow, but a stray shower or two cannot be entirely ruled out. Be sure to stay with StormTracker 9 as we'll keep you updated with the very latest.

Once we get to Tuesday, temperatures rebound quickly and we'll be back towards 60 degrees with sunny skies. The rest of the week looks even warmer, with temps in the mid to upper 60s. 70s are even possible once we get to Wednesday and Thursday. So regardless of precipitation on Monday, it will be a one-day event and we'll be back to normal and above-normal temps for the rest of the week.
