FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A strong upper level low is now spinning over Waco and drifting south toward the coast.  Gulf moisture is wrapping around this low and continues to flow into North Texas.  This is creating the cloud cover and rain many people across North Texas have been seeing this afternoon.  At the surface we have a strong north wind blowing in cold air.  Temperatures are in the 50s thanks to the rain and that north wind.  Winds have been gusting to 25 mph at times.

The rain will continue overnight into the morning on Wednesday.  There will likely be some lingering rain in the afternoon.  Winds will continue to be breezy out of the north at 15 to 25mph tonight and tomorrow so temperatures will remain cool.  There will be clearing in the evening on Wednesday from north to south.

Sunshine will return Thursday and Friday, but the north wind will continue to blow with temperatures topping out in the 60s each afternoon.  Friday and Saturday morning will be the coldest mornings with temperatures dropping into the upper 30s and low 40s each morning.

Winds will eventually turn to the south on Saturday and Sunday and temperatures will warm into the 70s in the afternoons.  We will see dry weather for the weekend and early next week.  Temperatures could get close to 80 degrees by next Monday or Tuesday.
