LUBBOCK, Texas – KAMC Meteorologist Shelby Mac has today’s forecast. Sponsored by J Ferg Pros.

Today: Cloudy skies with some peaks of the sun continue our Wednesday with winds in the afternoon. Our afternoon high will be similar to yesterday at 73°.

This evening: Partly cloudy skies will persist into the night as the cold front makes its way out of the South Plains. The lows in the evening will be a bit cooler than today as they are around 38°.

Tomorrow: Thanksgiving Day will have mostly sunny skies, but it will be our coldest day of the week. In the afternoon it will be 20 degrees cooler than today and it will be 53°.

Overcast overnight led to a mild start to our hump day with temperatures in the mid-40s near the Hub City. We will see winds pick up during the afternoon with a southwesterly wind moving 10 to 25 miles per hour this afternoon. The cold front will affect maximum temperatures tomorrow by dropping them 20 degrees from today. Highlights for Turkey Day will be in the lower 50s and for Black Friday we will be seasonal again in the lower 60s.

Clouds will continue through Wednesday with a few rays of sunshine throughout the day. Due to the south-westerly wind we continue to warm up in the afternoon. By midday, peaks will be in the lower 70’s, which will be similar to yesterday. Colder air will be pumped into West Texas tonight with lows in the upper 30s.

Thanksgiving will be our coldest day of the week due to a cold front that will pass tonight. As a result, our maximum temperatures will drop by 15 to 20 degrees from today to tomorrow. Grab your sweater for the holidays and eat until your heart is satisfied! It’s going to be a great day to relax indoors because of the cool temperatures and the chilly breeze that comes in from the northeast.

Temperatures have started this morning about ten degrees warmer than yesterday as we are in the lower to mid 40’s. We will have peaks in the 70s with mostly cloudy skies during the day. Temperatures will remain above our seasonal average for the rest of the day, but a cold front will slide in at night, leading to a much colder Thursday. A chilly Thanksgiving is forecast with peaks in the lower 50’s. The winds last all day, so be sure to pack a sweater for your Thanksgiving gathering! Over the weekend, temperatures will begin to soar into the mid-60s, which is more seasonal.

Have a great afternoon!

As costs rise, Bay Area restaurants weigh in on an unpopular move: Raising menu prices

As costs rise, Bay Area restaurants weigh in on an unpopular move: Raising menu prices

Your favorite sandwich might cost $1 more than it did a few weeks ago. The crab pasta you loved eating at Fisherman’s Wharf may now share space with shrimp. And the cookies you bought in a local pop-up may appear smaller on your next visit.

Bay Area restaurants face rising costs of seemingly everything, they say, from meat and eggs to flour and takeout containers. As a result, owners make difficult decisions to compensate. Some raise menu prices, others adjust portion sizes or cut dishes altogether.

The cost increases for many ingredients are dramatic, in some cases three times what they were a few months ago. They are among the myriad ripple effects caused by supply chain pandemic issues and the nationwide workforce crisis.

In the case of Bluestem Restaurant & Market, the San Francisco restaurant paid $20 for 15 dozen eggs in 2020 and is now paying $68 — a 240% increase, though it’s unclear exactly why. According to the latest consumer price index According to figures from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, prices for all consumer goods in the US increased by 6.2% from October 2020 to October 2021 in the US, and by about 12% for eggs.

“Jumps like this, I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Mica Talmor, owner of the Israeli restaurant Pomella in Oakland. “I don’t think we can survive without raising prices.”

So far, Pomella has gradually increased the prices of a few items, but plans to increase many items by at least 5%. Talmor, for example, has noticed that the cost of organic beans has doubled, while the price of its imported tahini has also risen because it is one of the commodities held in ports. That suddenly makes hummus, a staple of her restaurant typically considered simple and affordable, quite expensive to produce.

Pomella has seen prices rise dramatically for items such as compostable containers.

Talmor is also looking to raise the prices of all takeout orders to offset the rising cost of compostable packaging. She’s still figuring out how to implement the logistics, but she expects to charge an extra 50 cents per takeout item.

“It’s been hard — raising prices isn’t as easy as you think,” she said. “You don’t want to upset your customers, and already customers see us as expensive.”

Dinosaurs, a San Francisco mini-chain that serves Vietnamese sandwiches, issued a letter to customers this fall explaining why prices rose by 15% to 20%. The special banh mi filled with three kinds of pork jumped from $8.50 to $10.75.

The restaurant outlined several examples that fueled the decision: 50-pound bags of sugar went from $48.50 to $60, boxes of rice noodles went from $68 to $76, and boxes of biodegradable cups went from $86.50 to $135. .According to the latter consumer price index US Bureau of Labor Statistics figures, prices for all consumer goods in the US are up 6.2% in the US from October 2020 to October 2021

Rachel Caygill, owner of Greenhouse Bakery, a home-based business in Oakland, usually doesn’t look at her bills until the end of the month, so she was shocked to see the number growing so quickly. The cost of flour increased by 30% and butter by 10% – two key ingredients for a bakery. She thought about raising prices by 50 cents across the board, but didn’t want to seem too expensive.

“It’s hard to pay more than $3 for a cookie,” she said.

Instead, she bakes slightly smaller cookies to keep them at $3 and sticks on $1 worth of specialty pastries, like a seasonal croissant filled with butternut squash, leeks, and Gruyere cheese.

Simco Restaurants, which operates several waterfront restaurants in San Francsico, such as Fog Harbor Fish House, used to sell many lobster rolls. But the shellfish price hike drove the restaurants to stop serving it altogether, Chief Operating Officer Bob Patrite said. Crab is also getting more expensive, so the popular crab fettucini is now a crab and shrimp fettucini, keeping the price at $29.

“We’re not going to keep increasing the prices of dishes, so there will come a time when we say the price we have to charge is wrong,” he said. “Then we either remove the dish or start redesigning the dishes.”

Patrite said he has especially seen prices rise for anything that needs to be shipped, such as oil or seafood on the East Coast. But even local ingredients are more expensive, such as the flour that Caygill buys or the products at Pomella.

Facebook makes it easier to move your photos, posts, and more to other platforms.

Sarah Tew/CNET

are you ready to delete facebook? Or do you just want to make sure that your years of photos, videos, messages, notes and events are safely stored somewhere else so you can access them? Good news: Facebook lets you switch all your valuable information from the site to other platforms, and it’s not hard to do.

Facebook already allows you to download all your data (including ad targeting information that the site collects about you) in a ZIP file, and to move photos and videos specifically to Google Photos, Dropbox, Backblaze, and Koofr. Starting in August, you can also transfer your posts, notes, photos, and events directly from the site to Google Docs, Blogger, WordPress.com, Photobucket, and Google Calendar. Facebook said it will add more types of data you can transfer and more destinations in the future.

The expansion of Facebook’s Transfer Your Information tool comes as Facebook and tech companies like Amazon and Google have faced accusations from regulators and lawmakers that they are using monopoly power to illegally suppress their competitors. CNET’s Queenie Wong Reports. Lawsuits filed against Facebook last year noted that people are having a hard time moving their information to other platforms, a problem that keeps them on the social network.

Here’s how to use the Facebook Transfer Your Data tool to send your photos, videos, messages, notes, and events to other platforms. These instructions are largely the same whether you open Facebook in a browser or in the mobile app.

How to transfer your Facebook photos, videos, messages, notes and events

Use Facebook’s updated transfer tool to move your photos, videos, posts, and notes to platforms like Google Docs and WordPress.com.

3. From the drop-down menu, choose which platform you want to transfer your information to. Click Next step.

4. Choose what to transfer: photos, videos, messages, or notes, depending on the platform you’ve selected. You have the option to move all or those of a selected period or album. Click Next step.

5. Click Connect and start transfer. Log in to the service you selected to move your information to and select Confirm transfer. (Facebook notes that after the transfer, that service’s terms and policies will govern their use of your information.)

Now you have a copy of those precious Facebook posts that let you do whatever you want.
