Temperatures freefall all day on Friday

Highs today will be in the 80s with temperatures falling into the 40s by tomorrow afternoon.

The cold front is arriving and temperatures are dropping all across the southern plains.

Temperatures on Friday will be the opposite of what you would expect for weather on most days; warmest in the morning and coolest in the afternoon. 

Showers and a few thunderstorms will also be underway for the morning drive. Most rain showers will exit our region by the early afternoon. 

Additionally, we'll have breezy north winds which will make temperatures feel cooler than they actually are.
