FOX 5's Gwen Tolbart says the front should move through quickly. The Storm Prediction Center has us under a Marginal Risk for severe weather with the greatest risk being damaging winds.

Winds will be chilly from the northwest and gusty and could reach over 30mph. Behind the front very cold air moves in and temperatures will take a dive this evening and into Thursday. Highs will only be in the 50s Thursday after Tuesday's highs in the 70s!

There will be a Freeze Watch for far western zones for late Wednesday night through Thursday morning. A gradual warming trend into the weekend and early next week.
