A cold front came marching through this morning. Daytime highs actually occurred in the morning hours before the winds turned northwest and picked up. We spend the afternoon hours in the 40’s under cloudy skies and light rain.

The rain should continue across the evening. Wind chills are in the 30’s so bundle up if you are heading outside. I expect the rain to be confined to the southeast corner of our area by midnight. The clouds and wind should keep temperatures above freezing tonight:

We’ll wake up to cloudy skies tomorrow, but some afternoon sunshine (and less wind!) will get us into the 50’s for highs:

We have an upper-level low sweeping across south Texas over the next couple of days. It’ll bring some rain chances to our southeast by Monday:

For the metroplex it’ll just bring clouds but a nice south/southwest wind will push temperatures up to 70° by Monday afternoon. High pressure that is overhead on Sunday moves east on Monday. That means a warm return flow from the south:

Tuesday we’ll get into the 80’s with a southwest wind and sunshine. Then another cold front slams into us on Tuesday night. The winds will be very strong behind this front, gusts will reach near 40mph. Those strong winds will make for a cold Wednesday morning. Highs will only be in the 50’s. This time of year however these cold shots don’t linger. We’ll bounce back into the 70’s by next weekend.
