There's much less wind out there this morning compared to 24 hours ago, but a light north wind will still result in wind chill values (or what it feels like to exposed skin) in the teens and 20s across most of North and Central Texas. High temperatures will only make it into the upper 30s and lower 40s for most of us.
Partly sunny to mostly cloudy conditions today (Friday) with high temperatures generally in the upper 30s to lower 30s. Another cool night is on tap tonight, but slightly warmer temperatures are in store for Saturday. Increasing moisture will bring about an area of drizzle and light rain showers Saturday night, but this area of precipitation will move east of the I-35 corridor on Sunday as highs warm into the 60s to near 70. This warmup will be brief, however, as a cold front will send temperatures back to near normal to start the week.
With the expected arctic air intrusion Wednesday night through Friday, remember to keep the 4 P's in mind for protection against the frigid temperatures expected. Protect pipes, faucets, and sensitive plants, as well as preparing outdoor pets and people without ample heating for the impending chilly weather ahead. Also, shut off sprinklers as they can cause icy patches on roads and sidewalks resulting in injuries! Check your heater to ensure its functioning properly before the cold weather arrives.
Another strong front may arrive in the middle of next week. There are some notable uncertainties with this front including the timing and how far south the significantly colder air will sink. At this time it does not appear temperatures behind this front will be as cold as they were behind our most recent front that arrived Wednesday. Also, no precipitation is expected with this front.
