FIRST ALERT: We’re seeing a record setting September cold front

KFDA First Alert Weather Update 9/8

AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - Temperatures continue to drop behind this powerful cold front with afternoon temperatures already below record values in the 40′s.

Strong northerly winds are gusting near 40 miles per hour and wind chills are dropping into the 20′s and 30′s.

Drizzle has begun, and we expect heavier rain starting by evening and lasting off and on through tomorrow.

Although we will have record cold temps overnight in the 30′s, we do not anticipate a freeze or a change over to snow.
