A dry cold front is passing through the Tri-States and that will end our brief warm-up that had high temps near normal Wednesday. Temperatures will be much cooler through the rest of the week into the weekend. We see our next chance of rain Saturday and Sunday. It will be breezy again on Thursday the wind will be out of the northwest, brisk winds will result in an enhanced threat of wildfires in dry fields. The rain potential looks for Saturday looks a bit stronger at this time. A lower pressure system will develop just west of the Rockies in the panhandle region of Oklahoma. This storm system will have a weak warm front and a moderate cold front attached. Those frontal boundaries slide over the area on Saturday moving from the southwest to the east northeast. We will se a rebound in temps next week back toward more seasonable norms with highs in the 70s.
