Current Wind

TODAY: Staying windy, cloudy, and cold. High near 47, but with the north wind it will feel like we are in the 30s and low 40s. Wind Advisory is in place for our area until 4p as wind speeds stay 25-35mph through the afternoon, backing off some this evening.

TONIGHT: Clouds will clear from west to east later in the afternoon through tonight. Temperatures will plummet to the 20s for most of the area with the wind dropping to 5-15mph.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny and chilly, high near 53.

REST OF WEEK: Another upper level low digs south across Arizona and New Mexico, this will continue these cold temperatures with highs dropping to the 30s and 40s Thursday. There is also a slight chance for light snow as this low moves east across Texas. It does looks like some light accumulations may be possible for some location. This clears out early Friday with highs climbing to the 50s again.

EXTENDED: Things improve for the weekend as temperatures quickly climb back to the 60s and 70s. Clear and cold mornings, then sunshine in the afternoon. Looking into next week like this week warm temperatures continue Monday, then things turn cold again Tuesday.

Stay warm and inside as much as you can today. Matt will have the next updated look into Thursday tonight on the News at Nine.
