Winter finally ends today with a cold front… warmer weather and rain chances heading into the weekend…
A cold front is moving south across the Big Country this morning as we start the last morning of winter. Temperatures are still in the 40s for most across the Big Country, but with a northerly wind behind the front, you may want a jacket heading out the door. Cloud cover will build in this morning giving way to partly sunny skies today and temperatures back in the low to mid 60s.
More spring-like weather returns for Thursday with highs returning to the 70s. A chance for showers and thunderstorms looks likely Friday into Saturday with the best chance for rain Friday night into Saturday morning. No severe weather is expected, but a couple thunderstorms will be possible. Rain chances taper off through the day Saturday with a couple isolated showers still possible into Saturday night.
