Thursday, October 24, 2019: Strong cold front today (chilly, windy, and stormy)



A cold front will have a big effect on our weather today. It will cause temperatures to decrease throughout the day after reaching a high in the middle 60’s around midnight. By the evening, we will be in the 40’s. Rain and thunderstorms are likely as well. Latest model runs are showing the best chance for activity in the eastern Big Country. A few strong to possibly severe thunderstorms will be possible along and ahead of the front. The main hazards are lighting and locally heavy rain that may lead to localized flooding.

Overnight, it will be cold. Temperatures will fall to the 30’s. Latest model runs are showing the potential for some snow showers in the far northern Big Country counties. Winds will will stay breezy overnight as well. As far as rain totals for Thursday through Friday morning, eastern areas will be around 1/2″ to 1″. The rest of the Big Country will see 1/4″ to 1/2″.

Friday will be another chilly day. There will be a slight chance for lingering rain showers. Rain chances won’t be as good as Thursday, but a few of us may see frequent showers. Best chance for rain is in eastern areas.

High pressure will build in for the weekend as we return to the sunny and dry weather. Temperatures will increase into the 70’s as well.

Heading into next week, a weak cold front will push through Sunday into Monday. At this point in time the forecast looks dry with temperatures falling into the 60’s.

Another possible cold front is in the forecast for Wednesday. This will give us a slight chance for rain showers and thunderstorms and cool off high temperatures into the 50’s.
