As of 6:30 AM temperatures were mild. Most areas were in the middle 60’s. Winds were out of the south at 5-15 MPH under clear skies.
After a quiet and mild start, the temperatures will warm up quick. Expect high temperatures to reach the middle to upper 90’s under sunny skies. It will be a dry heat. There will be a breezy south southwest wind as well. This combination will make fire weather conditions elevated (mainly for the northwest Big Country). Overnight, temperatures will fall into the low 60’s under clear skies. It will stay breezy.
A strong cold front will push through our area Wednesday night into Thursday AM. It will be very windy behind that front. Expect winds on Thursday to be around 15-25 MPH with 40 MPH wind gusts. Wind Advisory criteria might be reached. Temperatures will only reach the low 70’s. The forecast will stay dry. Fire Weather conditions will once again be elevated.
Friday will be dry and quiet with high temperatures near 70°.
The GFS is showing the potential for a cold front during the Sunday-Monday time-frame while the ECMWF keeps us unusually warm. Due to uncertainties, I am just going with close to seasonable temperatures Saturday through Monday. The forecast will stay dry.
