Windy day, cold night in forecast

— Just because it is spring, doesn’t mean it can’t get below freezing in North Texas.

High winds today are expected to elevate the danger of grass and wild fires across the region, and it will be cold tonight, with a light frost possible by early Monday morning.

A wind advisory is in effect between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. today, due to the danger from gusting winds.

The National Weather Service forecast was calling for mostly sunny skies, with a high near 53 this afternoon. Winds are predicted to gust out of the northwest as high as 40 mph.

The low is expected to dip to around 30 degrees overnight, with the winds continuing to gust out of the north northwest at up to 35 mph.

Hunt County is not under a burn ban, although there are restrictions to outdoor burning. The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater than 23 mph. Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber. No prohibited material — including but not limited to rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.
