TYLER, Texas (KETK) – A warm start to November ends on Tuesday as a cold front moves in. Temperatures by Wednesday will be in the 50s for highs, at least a 20-25 degree temperature difference than Monday’s highs.
A stalled out front is located near and north of the Red River and draped into parts of Texas. While the true colder air resides north of the Red River, just behind the front in Texas temperatures drop.
Cold temperatures & rainfall
The cold front will move into East Texas on Tuesday, mainly north of I-20. Tuesday night, it slides farther south and cooler air impacts everyone for Wednesday.
Let’s look closer at temperatures as the front moves in.
Tuesday afternoon, the front is near/north of HWY 79. Warmer temperatures south and cooler north. Also, some rain in northern areas through the late afternoon. By Tuesday night, temperatures start to drop with clouds and isolated showers.
By Wednesday morning, it’s much colder with temperatures in the lower 50s and some 40s. Rain will increase during the day.
The chilly air is in place, and the rain looks to continue through Thursday morning.
This cold weather will be intense, and the rain will make for more wet time than dry time. Rainfall does not look to bring a flooding event, but some areas could approach 1 inch (especially for west counties).
Sunshine should return by late Thursday afternoon and definitely by Friday.
