Very windy conditions are expected this afternoon, as a cold front moves through the region. High temperatures will be reached around 2pm, then a rapid drop in temperatures can be expected late in the afternoon and early in the evening. It is around 2-3pm when the cold front arrives.
The winds will be the biggest concern today. North winds will begin to pick up later in the morning. By early afternoon, the winds will be in the neighborhood of 20-30mph. Gusts will easily hit 35mph and could even be closer to 45mph during the afternoon.
By sunset, the winds will begin to back down and by early tomorrow we will be back to a calm wind.
Temperatures will plunge into the 30’s tonight and will struggle to get out of the 50’s on Wednesday afternoon. However, the winds will be much calmer.
On Thanksgiving Day, we will expect colder temperatures in the morning hours. However, sunny skies and calm winds will be in the offing for the afternoon. Temperatures will climb back into the lower and even the mid 70’s for the Permian Basin.
The warmest day of the week looks to be on Black Friday. We will start the day in the mid to upper 40’s, so a jacket might be needed for your early shoppers. However, the temperature is expected to rapidly climb during the day. Highs will be in the neighborhood of 80! The record high for Friday is 83, so I expect the record to stay safe but it will be an overall warm day.
Another cold front is expected this weekend. This front will bring some breezy winds along the boundary but little in the way of rain or cold air. Highs will still reach in the 70’s on Saturday and Sunday… Just not near 80.
