TYLER, Texas (KETK) – The autumnal equinox is this Wednesday at 2:20 PM, and arriving just ahead of that will be our first true Fall cold front. Temperatures will take a tumble from the humid weather we have now. Some areas could see morning lows by Thursday morning in the lower 50s to the 40s!
This cold front is moving into East Texas now, bringing a chance of storms for our area. This front extends up into Canada.
As this front moves in, a few gusty storms are possible (low severe risk for East Texas). A “Marginal” risk is in place just east of the ArkLaTex region.
The main story: the temperatures. Check them out.
Behind the front, drier air and strong north winds will increase. You’ll see those in the graphics below.
