The winds this morning helped to keep conditions warmer then what they could have been, and they will also help the afternoon. Temperatures for this New Year's Day will jump above average to the upper 60's with sunny skies. As we make our way through the day winds will start to increase and switch later to the west-southwest 15 to 20 miles per hour ahead of a cold front expected tonight. By 6pm the front should be around the I-20 region pushing south through I-10 by midnight. Winds will drop slight as the front moves through picking back up tonight and bringing in much cooler air to the Concho Valley. Expect overnight lows to drop into the upper 20's, which will be mild compared to what that number could be. Once again the warmer temps are thanks to breezy winds 15 to 20 mph out of the north limiting the amount of radiational cooling (i.e. lost of heat due to the lack of cloud cover.) Thursday will see the winds die down and high pressure start it's return to the surface. By Friday we're looking for temperatures in the mid 50's with sunny skies and 60's by Saturday. That it where the second front is expected to hit dropping conditions back to the 40's by Sunday. This cooler trend looks to stick around for awhile as cooler air hits for several days with an increase of cloud cover. Monday is predicted near 43 degrees and 44 on Tuesday.
