Tuesday Morning Weather Update
Greg Morgan Ė Chief Meteorologist
A dry and very warm day is expected across West Texas today. Highs will reach into the upper 80ís and lower 90ís. Officially, Iím forecasting 88 degrees today. The record stands at 90, so we wonít be far from record territory. Winds will be out of the south at 10-20mph. Skies will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny.
Another warm day is expected on Wednesday. Highs will climb well into the upper 80ís and lower 90ís. Winds will be noticeably stronger on Wednesday too. Look for a south wind 15-25mph with higher gusts.
A cold front will move into the region on Thursday afternoon. This will effectively halt the heating in the lower 80ís. Temperatures will dive into the 40ís on Thursday night. Winds will remain out of the north into Friday.
Expect a much colder day on Friday and Saturday. Skies will be cloudy and a slight chance of rain will develop in the post-frontal environment. Look for highs in the 50ís Friday and Saturday afternoon. Lows will drop into the mid 30ís. As of right now, it doesnít appear that a killing frost is expected. However, a few locations over the northern row of counties might get close.
