Thursday's Wake-Up Weather: Much colder and very windy

*A Wind Advisory goes into effect this morning for the entire Big Country until late this evening and into the overnight.*

This Morning: A Spring-like start across the Big Country with temperatures in the mid to upper 40 and lower 50s. However, temperatures are starting to drop to the north where the cold front is starting to move through. Temperatures will drop this morning as the front moves through. Along and behind the front, expect winds to become northerly and very windy. Winds will be as high as 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 45 mph starting later this morning. A few more clouds will also accompany the front, expect skies to become partly sunny to mostly cloudy. 

This Afternoon: The front will have moved through the Big Country by this afternoon, keeping temperatures much cooler than yesterday. Highs will be warmer the further west, with the upper 40s this afternoon for much of the Big Country, but the upper 30s this afternoon for parts of the far eastern Big Country. A very slight chance (10%) for isolated sprinkles possible this afternoon into the evening for much of the central and western Big Country. For the eastern Big Country though where temperatures are even colder, a better chance (20%) for rain, including a few snowflakes mixed in as well. No travel troubles or impacts expected from any precipitation today. Winds will stay northerly around 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. 

Tonight: Winds will remain very breezy into the late evening hours, remaining northerly around 10 to 20 mph. Rain and light snow chances will taper off by late evening as skies start to clear heading into the overnight. Temperatures overnight will drop below freezing, into the mid and upper 20s with wind chills in the teens.
