Thursday's Weather: Turning colder & very windy this afternoon. Highs in the high 60s early dropping through the 50s late

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - A very strong cold front is heading our way.

Out ahead of the front there is not a lot of moisture to work with thanks to the upper level disturbance to our east.  With that said there is still a slight chance of a few showers along and especially behind the cold front this afternoon and overnight tonight. Highs will range from the lower 60s far north to the middle 70s in our southern counties.

Once the front moves through your area the winds will shift to the northwest 20 to 25 miles per hour and gusty and usher in some of the coldest air we have ever seen here in May.

Temperatures will drop through the 50s during the late afternoon and evening hours.
