Strong Winds and Warmer Air Return

By  | 

Chilly temperatures and light winds are expected this morning. However, the winds and the temperatures are expected to increase later in the day.
Highs will climb into the upper 60’s and lower 70’s today. Winds will be out of the south at 15-25mph.

Sunny skies and breezy southwest winds will be in place on Wednesday. As a result of the westerly winds, temperatures will climb. Expect highs in the mid to upper 70’s on Wednesday afternoon. The winds will be gusty for some and breezy for others. Most locations can expect wind speeds to reach 15-20mph. A few locations could see slightly stronger winds.

A cold front will drop through the Texas Panhandle on Thursday. The front will arrive here in the Permian Basin early in the day. Winds will swing around to the north (10-20mph) in response to the front.
The air will be colder behind the front. However, the coldest air will stay in the Texas Panhandle. Look for daytime temperatures to reach the mid and upper 50’s. The overnight low on Thursday night/Friday morning will drop into lower 30’s. Even a little wind will bring the wind chill readings down into the 20’s.
Highs on Friday will climb back into the mid 50’s, which is slightly cooler than normal.

The weather pattern will go up and down through the weekend. Expect highs in the 70’s on Saturday, with westerly winds at the surface.
Another cold front will come through the area on Sunday. This will again swing winds around to the north and bring highs down into the 50’s.

It appears that all of the cold fronts that make it into our area over the next week will come through dry.
