Sunshine returns Thursday, mild weather makes brief visit

WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - Temperatures are in the 20s this morning but roads are mostly dry. So, no travel issues this morning. Clouds are expected to give way to sunny skies this afternoon allowing temperatures to warm to the mid 40s. Winds will be light. We’ve had our eye on Friday as our final chance of mild weather before another blast of Arctic air. A warm front will lift north into the Red River valley, winds will become southeasterly and hopefully temperatures will warm to near 60 degrees.

A cold front will drift into Texoma Friday night. We’ll wake up to north winds and cloudy skies Saturday, when highs will be near 40. The coldest weather over the next seven days will be Sunday and Monday when high temperatures are forecast to be below freezing. The new headline in the weekend forecast is precipitation. It begins as a chance of rain late in the day Saturday, changing to a wintry mix by early Sunday morning. Temperatures could drop to near 10 degrees Monday morning. It will be at least the middle of next week before temperatures warm to near normal.
