.NOW...
AREAS OF LIGHT RAIN WILL CONTINUE ACROSS MUCH OF NORTH AND NORTH
CENTRAL TEXAS THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS AS A COLD FRONT
CONTINUES TO SLIDE TO THE SOUTH OF THE AREA. A FEW RUMBLES OF

BE EXPECTED PRIMARILY ALONG AND NORTH OF A BRECKENRIDGE TO SANGER
TO SHERMAN LINE THROUGH 3 PM. IN ADDITION....NORTH WINDS WILL
STRENGTHEN THIS AFTERNOON AND SUSTAINED WINDS OF 25 MPH ARE
EXPECTED TO BECOME WIDESPREAD ACROSS ALL OF NORTH AND NORTH
CENTRAL TEXAS. WIND GUSTS BETWEEN 30 AND 45 MPH CAN ALSO BE
EXPECTED. THE STRONG WINDS WILL RESULT IN WIND CHILLS FALLING INTO
THE 20S.

FOR AREAS SOUTH OF WACO...
IN ADDITION TO THE AFOREMENTIONED RAIN...AREAS OF PATCHY FOG WILL
CONTINUE THIS AFTERNOON AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT.
