First Fall Cold Front Moving Through Texas Today

9:20 AM CDT | September 5, 2017

Our first early fall cold front is moving through the state this morning. It has moved through the Texas Panhandle and Northwest Texas. Gusty north winds will occur behind the front, but the cooler air will lag a bit. Because the front is moving through the state a few hours earlier, temperatures across Northwest/North Texas will be a few degrees cooler. The warmest temperatures today look to be in North Central Texas, to the south of I-20. Places like Hillsboro and Waco will likely see upper-90*F's for highs. The best storm chances later today and into this evening will be across these areas and points to the east and northeast. This morning's hi-res HRRR model has the general idea. This is what it shows by 7:00 PM. A marginally Severe Storm or two with Damaging Winds will be possible. Cooler and drier air will continue to filter into the state which will make for some nicer days beginning tomorrow. Unfortunately, we will still have to wait a while longer before our first "real" fall cold front.
