Tuesday was a tied record at 79F. Yesterday was 80F. (Not a record or a tie.)

Today was 75F at 1 pm... then 60F at 2 pm.  Fifteen degrees in one hour. Wow!

Funny, it's not even a strong cold front; we won't get below 40F tonight. But it has been extremely windy for three days, with at least two Wind Advisories. Yesterday afternoon in particular it was gusting over 35 mph, with sustained winds alone over 25 mph. (Force 6-7 on the Beaufort Scale.)

Strong wind (not from a storm) at this time of year is usually associated with a cold front; the closer the isobars are to each other, the greater the wind speed. I suspect that the isobars were really compressed ahead of the front. And when the colder air finally arrived, it did so All At Once.

At least it's feeling a little more like winter. And there's significant rain predicted for the next 4 days.  Good thing it's not truly cold - Oklahoma is likely to be an icy mess.
