WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - After making it to the low 70s in Texoma Monday, a cold front is blasting into north Texas. Because of the front, it will be colder this afternoon than it was this morning. Also, winds will become much stronger after the front comes through. A well-defined area of low pressure we’ll sweep through North Texas as the day goes on. The best chance of rain today will be near and north of the low-pressure center, giving Oklahoma better rain chances than North Texas.
Snow continues to fall over Northwestern Oklahoma, where a Winter Storm Warning is in effect, and where there will be travel problems related to accumulating snow. The chance of rain will remain in the forecast through this evening. After today, our weather will remain chilly Wednesday into Thursday, but then we see a welcome warm up toward the weekend. We might make it to 70° on Groundhog’s Day.
