SAN ANGELO, Texas – A cold front is set to sweep through the Concho Valley Tuesday marking a noticeable drop in temperatures.
According to the National Weather Service office, today's highs are projected to be around 10 degrees lower than yesterday, accompanied by brisk north winds and predominantly cloudy skies. However, as the day progresses, the clouds will disperse, granting mostly clear skies by the evening. This clearing will pave the way for a significant overnight temperature decrease, with lows hovering around the freezing mark for numerous areas.
Looking ahead to the extended forecast from Wednesday through Monday, a continuation of cold weather is anticipated into Wednesday morning. By Wednesday night, the prevailing surface winds are expected to shift to a more southerly to southwesterly direction. This alteration in wind patterns, coupled with increased sunshine through Wednesday and Thursday, is likely to elevate afternoon highs back into the 60s for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.
The influx of southerly winds will introduce a measure of low to mid-level moisture, gradually augmenting cloud cover as the week concludes and extending into the weekend. Consistent model forecasts point to the progression of a second cold front across the area, anticipated to traverse southeastward through Friday night into Saturday. This front is poised to bring forth another spell of chilly temperatures, brisk northerly winds, and potentially scattered rain showers over the weekend, primarily affecting eastern and southeastern counties.
