The crazy Texas weather is about to change again.

It's going to be sunny and warm today, with temperatures hovering around 80 and south winds at 15 to 20 mph. Tuesday morning won't be bad either as residents will awaken to temperatures in the mid-60s.

But an Alaskan cold front is expected to arrive later in the day, bringing north winds that will quickly drop temperatures into the 50s Tuesday afternoon.

There's also a 20 percent chance of light rain as the front arrives.

Wednesday morning is expected to bring record low temperatures of 38 or 39 degrees, which will break the mark of 41 degrees set in 1995.

While North Texas is not expected to see freezing temperatures, "it's still cool for this time of year," said meteorologist Dennis Cavanaugh of the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Wednesday's high will be in the lower 60s.

It will still be cool Thursday morning as residents will awaken to temperatures in the upper 40s. But it will begin to warm up on Thursday and stay that way for the rest of the week including the weekend.

Highs will be in the 70s and it could get back to 80 degrees on Sunday, forecasters say.
