Breezy northwest winds are expected today behind Monday evening's cold front. Sustained wind speeds will be in the 15-25 mph range with some gusts to around 35 mph possible. If you have any loose/unsecured Halloween decorations, it might be a good idea to secure them up or bring them inside before heading out the door today!
Cooler air will move into the region on breezy northwest winds today. As a result, high temperatures will be in the upper 60s near the Red River, and in the lower to mid 70s elsewhere this afternoon.
A chilly night is on tap tonight as wind speeds subside under mostly clear skies. Low temperatures will mostly be in the lower 40s, but some of our sheltered and outlying areas may dip into the upper 30s by daybreak on Wednesday.
A strong cold front will sweep across the region Thursday night. Thursday will be a warm and windy day with possible elevated fire weather concerns due to warm temperatures, strong winds, and low humidity. Friday and Saturday will be the coolest days so far this season with chilly north winds. Daytime highs will only be in the mid 50s to lower 60s, and morning low temperatures will be in the 30s.
