A strong cold front pushed through last night; it created one more round of rain/storms as the winds turned around to the northwest. You likely heard those winds through the night as they gusted over 30 mph.
We start Sunday with some clouds but the story is the wind. A Wind Advisory continues into the early evening as gusts will peak near 45mph. Lows start in upper 30′s with wind chills below freezing. The highest wind will occur in the first half of the day:
We’ll have some sunshine and the day is longer than the night this time of year. It won’t matter much; highs today will only get to the low 50′s (upper 40′s along the Red River). This would be a typical day in late December or Early January.
The winds slacken overnight heading into Monday morning. Yes the growing season has started but we’ll have a hard freeze and frost in our northwest counties across Stephens, Graham, Jack and Wise counties:
Monday we’ll have plenty of sunshine but the northwest winds (10-15 mph so not nearly as gusty as today) keep highs in the mid-50′s.
Another freeze is possible on Tuesday morning. Then the winds turn to the south and warm Spring weather returns. We have rain right back in the forecast next weekend as we close March:
