Weather - Winter Bites Back


Winter Bites Back

By Gerard Roe
Staff Meteorologist

Winter may be on its way out, but it still carries a sting.

A cold front passing through has brought extremely cold air over the region. Fortunately it is a glancing blow, and as the high pressure system presses eastward, there will be a welcome warming in its wake beginning late tonight, with temperatures pushing back up over freezing. Wednesday will see blustery winds from the southwest bringing in more warm air. There is a chance of rain on Thursday as a storm now brewing over Texas begins to make its presence felt.

Today: A very chilly day. Mostly sunny. Breezy, northwesterly winds. High 24F (-5C).

Tonight: Mainly clear. A shift in the winds to southwesterly after midnight. Low 20F (-7C).

Wednesday: Strong winds out of the southwest. High 44F (7C). Low 34 (1C).

Thursday: Becoming cloudy. Chance of rain afternoon. High around 40F (5C). Low around 30F (-1C).
