Very Gusty Winds

The wind will remain the big story for the next 24 hours. Overnight, a south wind will continue at 15-25 mph. That will keep the temperatures up in the 60’s all night long. That’s awfully warm for a January night!

But Tuesday morning, a Pacific cold front will arrive, switching winds around to the west, and increasing 20 to 40 mph. There may be a few gusts approaching 50 mph. Although there won’t be much cooling initially, the front will drop humidities drastically, and in combination with the strong winds, will lead to a high fire danger. As a result, a Red Flag Warning has been posted, along with a High Wind Watch, for all of north Texas all day Tuesday. We may even see a little blowing dust by mid-day.

The wind will beging to subside by sunset, and it will get a good deal colder Tuesday night, dropping to near 30 degrees by early Wednesday morning.
