South winds will shift to the north this afternoon as a cold front pushes south through the region. The front will cross the Red River early this afternoon, then exit the southern-most counties early this evening. Skies should remain mostly cloudy across the southeastern-most counties, with partly cloudy skies elsewhere.
Cooler and breezy weather is in store tonight following a cold front which will push through the area this afternoon. Gusty winds mixed with temperatures in the 30s will produce wind chill values in the 25 to 30 degree range across the northwest and Red River counties.
A cold front will move through Central Texas early Wednesday morning, leaving brisk north winds 10 to 15 mph and mostly sunny conditions in it's wake. This will be the coolest day of the week, with many areas struggling into the 50s by afternoon for high temperatures. The wind will make it feel even cooler.
Outside of a few modest cold front Friday night/Saturday morning this Thanksgiving Weekend, look for near, or slightly above seasonal temperatures with no rainfall expected. Off and on breezy conditions will occur with highs in the 60s and 70s.

Experimental Convective Parameters For North Texas

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth is now offering Experimental Convective Parameters on this website!

The analysis is computed using surface observation data and the latest RUC model for all upper level data.  This is different from the SPC mesoanalysis web page, because no model analysis is used for the surface fields.  This means our analysis is heavily weighted to the latest surface observation. Thus, some small "bulls-eye" type areas may occur if a surface observation is outlying or incorrect.  Bad observations are periodically quality controlled by forecasters and removed.  The advantage to this technique is that our convective parameters will have a higher resolution and be capable of rapid adjustments if the atmosphere is rapidly changing.

The parameters are generated hourly, with the generation process starting around 15 minutes past the hour. The images should be available by 20 past each hour.

We are currently producing the following images:
