Happy Friday! The temperatures were pleasant today although the wind was strong. We started off the morning in the upper 20s/lower 30s and warmed to the upper 50s/lower 60s this afternoon with a sustained southwest wind of 20-30mph and gusts in excess of 40mph at times. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.


We will keep a steady southwest breeze overnight which will turn more to the west tomorrow morning. Temperatures again will start off around the freezing mark but afternoon temperatures will vary depending on where you are located due to a cold front that will move through in the afternoon. Our northern communities will likely warm to the upper 40s, our central communities to the mid 50s and our southern communities into the 60s. Of course temperatures will be cooler if the front moves through sooner and warmer if it were to move through faster.
The wind won’t be as strong tomorrow as it was today, starting off from the west at about 15-25mph and then shifting to the north behind the front, remaining about 15-25mph. The north wind will help bring in much colder air which we will really feel on Sunday and Monday. During these two days many locations will not warm above freezing but the good news is that the wind will be fairly light. While we certainly will be cold, we won’t be nearly as cold as the Midwest which is expecting some of the coldest temperatures in decades. Some cities in the upper Midwest will stay below zero for several days in a row!

Southwest winds will pick up again on Tuesday helping to bring in warmer air. We will warm back into the mid 50s by midweek with another storm system approaching at the end of the week. Long range models are showing that this system could provide us with some rain although we are too far away now for any specifics. Stay tuned!

I hope you had a great day and have a great weekend! I will step you through the forecast tonight after the Cotton Bowl and Caitlin will have all the forecast updates for you this weekend.
