AUSTIN (KXAN) — An overnight (mainly dry) cold front has really kicked up the winds this morning. Temperatures feel chilly to exposed skin because of the wind, but they’re only about 5 degrees cooler than this time yesterday. The gusty north winds will be the main weather story for today, perfect for the kite festival.
The gusty north winds will be sustained out of the north around 20 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph later in the day. This front has also replaced the muggy, humid air yesterday with dry and comfortable air today.
