Another Big Chill Headed for East Texas

Despite our mild temperatures over the past week, Old Man Winter will make a return to East Texas tomorrow.

A strong cold front will move into the Piney Woods of East Texas shortly after lunchtime. As the front approaches, we may see a few scattered showers, but nothing widespread or heavy.

You will know when the front moves through your neighborhood because of the strong winds that will pick up behind it. We will see winds gust up to 20 to 25 mph late Thursday, making for very blustery conditions.

The strong winds will usher in much colder air into the region, dropping our temperature values to below normal for the rest of the week and lasting through much of the weekend.

Look for our highs tomorrow to top out near 60, but Friday, that will be a different story.
Highs for most of us will be in the 40's, with many areas not getting above 50°. The good news, though, is that at least the sun will be out. It will just be a cold sunshine.
