Sunny and breezy this Wednesday afternoon. It will be a little warmer (than yesterday) with highs near average for late October.
Clear, cold, and calm tonight. Lows, too, will be typical for the season.

Scattered storms and showers are likely Thursday evening. Some storms may become marginally severe. That is, hail up to about an inch across and wind gusts up to about 60 mph will be possible. The severe storms are most likely near and east of the Caprock.
Thursday night the storms shift east, but scattered rain showers are expected into Friday morning.
A cold rain is likely into at least early Friday afternoon. It will be cloudy and windy, at least through the morning. Plan to bundle up if you’ll be heading out.
