A very winter-like
cold front is plowing through the northern plains today and will move very
quickly to the south over the next few days, arriving in East Texas on Thursday morning.
There will be a significant change in temperatures during the day
and chances for showers and thundershowers will exist throughout the day
Temperatures will start
off in the 60s across East Texas. As the front moves through, which is
when your high temperature will occur, temperatures will drop quickly into
the 50s and stay there through the rest of the day...even a few
upper 40s possible along Interstate 30.
Make sure you are ready for
this temperature change. Make sure the kids have at least a light jacket on
Thursday morning when they head off to school, and you to work, as with the
winds, it will feel much, much cooler.
Lows on Friday and Saturday mornings
will be in the lower 40s, for sure, with a few dipping into the upper 30s.
High temperatures will be in the lower 60s on Friday, recovering into the
lower 70s on Saturday and then the middle 70s by Sunday
Winds behind this front
will howl out of the Northwest at 20-30 mph with gusts nearing 40 mph at
times. The brisk NW winds will continue on Friday as well, before settling
down on Saturday and Sunday.
There is a very low risk
for severe weather on Thursday, but that does not mean that a few heavier thundershowers
will not occur then. Rainfall totals expected to be less than 1.00" on
