With plenty of moisture in place, and a cold front moving into the Big Country Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, showers and thunderstorms are expected. While rain amounts will be light in most areas, a few spots could receive a brief heavy downpour. Some of the storms could produce gusty wind and small hail. Cooler air follows passage of the cold front Wednesday morning. Temperatures in the middle 40's in the northern counties of the Big Country early Wednesay morning to the middle 50's across the southern counties. Rain moves east out of the area early in the day and a gradual decrease in clouds, north to south, will take place as the day progresses. Wednesday night into Thursday morning, a FROST is expected across the Big Country, with a few areas dropping to freezing. It is a good idead to protect your plants Wednesday night. While Thursday begins as cold as we've seen so far this Autumn, the afternoon will turn out nice with highs in the middle 60's. We'll see temperatures near normal for this time of year for the end of the week and a little above normal this weekend. Early next week, a slight chance for showers again.
