A cold front is on the way, bringing cooler temps, and most noticeably, very windy conditions and high fire danger.
Wednesday night, expect clear skies. Light winds will be with us most of the night until near dawn. Early Thursday, northwesterly winds will accelerate quickly as the front moves through. Expect steady speeds from 20-35mph with some gusts to near 45mph.
Rather dry air will also be in place, so fire danger will be very high Thursday and Friday.
With windy conditions Thursday and Friday, cooler temps will be here with low 50s Thursday leading to only middle 40s Friday.
Highs in the 40s will be the norm this weekend with more cool air next week. Our next chance for rain will come to Oklahoma on Tuesday.
