Rain chances will linger through the overnight hours, especially for areas along and south of a Breckenridge to Sanger to Paris line. Areas further north will likely see periods of light drizzle or fog. Rainfall amounts should remain light and a rumble of thunder or two cannot be ruled out. Severe weather is not expected, however! Overnight low temperatures will fall into the low 40s along the Red River to near 50 degrees across southern/southeastern zones.
Cool conditions will prevail through the first half of the week with temperatures near or just below seasonal normals. Much COLDER conditions are expected to arrive late Wednesday. Breezy north winds will ensure that temperatures fall to or near 32 degrees across much of North and Central TX Wednesday Night into Thursday's morning. While little to no precipitation is expected and skies will clear, strong north winds coupled with very cold conditions will result in wind chill values in the teens and twenties. Actual air temperatures on Thursday will struggle to climb above 40 degrees. Thursday night into Friday morning will prove to be even colder as clear skies and light winds are forecast. Overnight low temperatures during this time period will likely fall into the upper 20s along the Red River to mid 20s elsewhere. This will likely result in some of the coldest conditions thus far this meteorological winter and likely some of the lowest temperatures this region has seen within the past two years.
