Strong Cold Front Arrives Wednesday Night

Temperatures plunge with gusty winds Thursday

First Alert Forecast - Jacob Dickey

TONIGHT: Expect calming winds 2-7 mph from the east with a clear sky. Lows fall into the upper 40s and 50s area-wide.

WEDNESDAY: Look for highs back in the low to middle 90s with lots of sun. Winds will become breezy from the south and west 10-20 mph, with higher gusts possible. We anticipate fire weather conditions to increase again, particularly in far west Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. Lows fall into the 50s ahead of a cold front. Wednesday Night will be another blustery night with north winds picking up again 20-40 mph behind the cold front. Gusts could push 50+ in spots.

THURSDAY: Look for much cooler air with highs in the 60s and 70s. North winds 15-30 mph with higher gusts are expected. Lots of sunshine remains with some passing clouds. Lows Thursday Night are back in the 40s in the region.

FRIDAY: We’ll anticipate 60s and 70s again with a sunny sky and north winds 5-15 mph. Lows at night are in the 40s.

NEXT WEEKEND: Look for perfect fall weather with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s. Another front is expected to approach and pass through Sunday into Monday, but some uncertainty exists. The passage and timing of the front will play a role in next week’s weather.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: A great deal of uncertainty is in place given the timing and evolution of the late weekend front. The most likely scenario is that it clears through Sunday into Sunday Night which would cool us off bigtime with highs in the 60s Monday into Tuesday. Lows would be in the 40s and even upper 30s. If the front stalls to the north, it is possible that we could have mild weather for a few days before finally the front would surge through. We’ll keep you updated.
