The ups & downs with lots of wind ahead.

After some pea to penny hail & gusts to 50 mph Monday evening, today was cool & windy with low clouds & gusts 30-40 mph.

Highs reached 51-57 with lots of clouds & a few isolated sprinkles to light showers.

Tonight, skies will gradually clear & winds go light with lows 33-38.

With sunny skies turning to increasing high to mid clouds, winds will increase again to 15-30 mph from the southwest to south-southwest tomorrow.

Highs of 59-66 are likely.

Clouds will continue to increase & thicken tomorrow night with lows of 43-47.

With mostly cloudy skies, a few showers are possible Thursday as cold front passes through.  A few are possible into Thursday night with lows 39-45.  Winds Thursday will turn to the north at 10-15 mph.

As for Friday, it looks cool & breezy with a north wind at 10-20 mph with highs only 47-54.   A few showers could still occur in the morning, followed by some gradual clearing.

There is a potent southern storm system that will bring widespread rainfall to the southern U.S.  Potential is there for some snow in the Texas Panhandle & then again in the high elevations of the Appalachians (before precipitation ends).

It this system would happen to shift northward, it would bring a nasty, wind-driven cold rain to end the week & move into the weekend.  That does not look to be the case right now, but the potential is not zero.  We will monitor.

This will be an impressive cold air surge into the southern Plains!  Highs may only run in the 30s in the Texas Panhandle Thursday!

As for Friday night, it looks mostly clear & cold with northeast wind at 5 mph.  Frost & freezing is possible with lows near 30, followed by sunshine & 50s Saturday with a north wind at 5-10 mph.

Clear skies & calm winds with surface high right overhead may bring frost & freezing with 20s to 30 Saturday night-Sunday morning.

After a quick warm up to 62-66 Sunday with strong southwest wind, strong cold front should pass Sunday night with a few showers.

Strong northwest winds & some low clouds Monday may bring higs of only 43-47 with a few sprinkles.

Next Monday & Wednesday look cold & breezy with considerable low cloudiness (stratocumulus) with a few sprinkles or even flurries at times.  Highs will run in the 40s with lows in the 30s.  The northwest winds at 15-30 mph will make it feel even colder.

Thursday (Halloween) looks sunny & calm, but chilly with highs 46-51 with surface high directly overhead.  This will mean a COLD, frosty Halloween night with lows 23-27.  Trick-or-Treating looks clear & calm with temperatures quickly falling to 40 by 7 p.m. into the 30s by 8 p.m.

After Halloween, a BIG CHANGE looks to suddenly get underway. 

Strong south to southwest winds will return to 35 mph.

Highs should skyrocket to the 60s to 70 with blizzard of falling leaves!

After a cool snap, another big warm surge or two should occur up to November 15.  Much colder weather should follow.

Some severe risk is possible here or nearby around November 5-6 & November 13-15.

Around November 5-6 projection:
