Skirt alert and hang on to those hats! New cold front brings in strong winds

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Look for mostly cloudy skies on Sunday. There will be a few rays of sunshine peak through.

There is a 30% chance of showers north of I-40.  Don’t expect more than a tenth of an inch of rain at most from any of these showers.

Otherwise, temperatures will climb only into the low 60s before a cold front sweeps across the state this afternoon and kicks up winds out of the northwest at 25-35mph. Gusts could reach 40 to 45mph at times, so hold onto your hat!

The front will clear out the rest of this weekend’s moisture later tonight and leave us with mostly clear skies and lows in the 30s by sunrise tomorrow morning. Winds overnight will stay in the 10-20mph range, so expect wind chills in the 20s after midnight.

Monday will be breezy and cool with highs in the mid to upper 50s and a steady westerly breeze at 15-25mph under mostly sunny skies.

Cooler weather stays with us on Tuesday with highs in the mid 50s, but 60s return for Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day! Most of your Thanksgiving Thursday will be sunny and mild, but a cold front will bring low 30s for the morning of Black Friday.
