KAUZ Midday Monday Weather

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - After a pleasant Monday, much colder weather comes in Tuesday along with strong winds and a fair chance of rain. Tuesday’s high temperature will be at least 20 degrees colder than today’s. In fact, Tuesday may be colder in the afternoon than in the morning. A fast-moving storm system now blasting into the West Coast will move toward Texas over the next 24 hours. It will help push a cold front through Texoma. Behind that front, winds will become very strong out of the north Tuesday with gusts of over 30 miles per hour. we also expect to see some hit and miss downpours across the region.

Parts of Oklahoma could see snow, but any travel problems should remain north of I-40. A weaker disturbance will slide through Texas later in the week that keeps slight rain chances in our forecast Thursday and Friday.
