Morning Fog, Slightly Cooler
We here at CBS11 hope you had a Merry Christmas! Here in the day after expect some morning fog and a cooler afternoon.
Visibility this morning dropped below a quarter-a-mile this morning across Grayson County. With temperatures in the 20′s this created the threat of freezing fog. This is when cloud droplets (about the 1/100th the size of a raindrop or smaller) hit a surface that is below freezing. The water in the droplet immediately freezes and forms a very thin coat of ice. If the fog is thick enough and lingers long enough it can create icy spots on the roads, especially on the elevated surfaces. There are Freezing Fog Advisories out for a large part of Oklahoma and parts of Missouri and Arkansas.
All this clears away quickly, we have mostly sunny skies in store for us today. The cold front that passed through yesterday will make for a cooler day than Christmas. For our Thursday highs will only get just above 50 degrees for afternoon highs. There won’t be much wind and just some high clouds later in the day.
We are going to have a nice warm-up starting tomorrow that lasts a few days. This is a big improvement over the temperatures last weekend:
Yes, we’ll be in the 60′s by Saturday. But cold fronts are coming through north Texas about every 3-4 days lately. This trend continues with a cold front coming on Sunday. High pressure built in quickly behind the cold front that came through yesterday. As it shifts to the east it’ll bring in a south wind which provides a wonderful warm up for Friday and Saturday. By Saturday nigh a cold front will be sitting just up to our north up in Denver. It sweeps in early part of the day on Sunday:
We are not putting any rain in the forecast with this frontal passage, just some clouds. Highs on Sunday might be early in the day as strong north winds push those temperatures down to the low 40′s by late afternoon. Another warm up happens before (yes: 3-4 days later) ANOTHER cold front comes through. Right now we’ll include a slight chance for some light rain on the first day of 2014.
