Local News

MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar) – We don’t have to tell you how cold it has been this week. Freezing temperatures have greeted West Texans since late last week.

But the National Weather Service put it in perspective Friday, saying freezing temperatures were present for 220 ½ hours. That’s more than nine days below the freezing mark.

However, as of 11:26 a.m. Friday morning, the NWS says they reached 32 degrees, effectively shutting down the counter.

Meteorologist Derek Sibley says sunny skies are ahead and todays high is expected to reach about 47 degrees.
