810 PM CST Fri Nov 17 2017

middle 80s. At 8pm, winds were out of the south, between 10 and
20 miles per hour, gusting to 25 miles per hour. Temperatures

Partly cloudy skies will continue overnight, and into Saturday

region early Saturday morning, shifting winds out of the north.

quiet weather with seasonal temperatures through the weekend and
into early next week.
