Overnight temperatures are expected to drop to a low of 26 degrees with partly cloudy skies and gusty winds that could blow dust. Wind speeds could be between 15 and 30 mph after midnight with gusts as high as 45 mph.

Thursday is likely to be breezy with some gusts up to 35 mph, the weather service said.

"A cold front roars through Thursday morning," Gazette news partner KKTV reported. "As it does so, we will see wind gusts over 40 mph and temperatures dropping through the day. We should only manage the 30s and 40s in the afternoon with a pretty significant wind chill as winds stay strong all day."

The rest of the week's temperatures will hover in the 40s with a slight chance of snow Saturday.
