From windy and warm to blustery and bone-chilling

The cold front has already passed through our northwestern-most counties, dropping temps into the 40s. Temps out ahead of the front in the Metroplex are in the 60s and 70s, but not for long. Once the cold front passes, temps will continue falling until early Sunday morning when we finally bottom out in the teens and twenties with wind chills in the single digits.

Speaking of winds, we have a Wind Advisory in effect for all of North Texas until Midnight tonight as winds will be sustained 20-30 mph, gusting up to 40 mph.

In terms of timing and location... areas North and West will see their warmest temps this morning and only fall from there. The Metroplex itself will see the frontal passage around noonish and then temps take a nose dive. In the mean time, we'll linger in the 60s and low 70s. Areas south and east will have the MOST time before the front passes and will get to spend the daylight hours enjoying the warmer-than-average weather but the front will pass eventually this afternoon into this evening, and they'll join the rest of us in the bitter cold.

As for moisture, 'misting' will occur ahead and behind the front, but should taper off before the freezing point is reached.

Note... any areas that have not dried out, will see slippery conditions after we dip below freezing. Good news is that this shouldn't be very common since the high winds will help to dry the pavement pretty quickly.

After the bone-chilling start to Sunday morning, afternoon temps will barely make it to the freezing point with continued breezy conditions.

The workweek brings slowly warming temps back into the 50s (where we should be) with dry conditions.
