Corsicana — The cold front that blew in Wednesday, bringing storms and rain in its wake, was a little stronger than is typical for a spring incident, but not that bad.

The freezing weather was projected to hit farther north of Navarro County, with the lowest temps expected here in the mid 30s, according to Nick Hampshire, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

By Thursday the temperatures were predicted to already be headed back up, with highs in the 60s by Thursday afternoon, and the 70s by Friday. The weekend should show temperatures in the high 70s, Hampshire said.

“We’ll have a couple more cold fronts come through, but they probably won’t be as strong as this one,” he said.

The rain that fell Wednesday was the last for a little while, also. The next possibility for rain is forecast for next Wednesday. As rainy springs go, this is a fairly dry one, Hampshire said.

“So far we’ve probably been about average, or a little below average,” he said.

Spring is also peak tornado season, with the season lasting until the end of May.
