Cold blast in Thursday morning forecast

Posted: Updated:

Provided by National Weather Service:

A strong cold front will blast through the area early Thursday morning. Initially along the front, a few strong thunderstorms may be possible, primarily across the eastern Rolling Plains Thursday morning. Behind the front, much colder air will spread over the South Plains on northerly winds sustained at 20 to 30 mph.

Temperatures by Thursday afternoon will only be in the 30s across the southern Texas Panhandle with lower to middle 40s over the central and southern South and Rolling Plains. These colder temperatures, combined with the gusty northerly winds, will make it feel like it is in the 20s and 30s, in stark contrast to the recent warmth.  

In addition, a potent upper level storm system will approach from the west and meander somewhere in the vicinity from late week through at least early this weekend. This will keep a chance of periodic precipitation in the forecast Thursday, Friday and Saturday, though currently it appears any precipitation will be on the light side.
