Cold Fronts Bring More Than Just Cool Temperatures

A cold front moved through North Texas Thursday morning, so it's no surprise that it will be cooler.

But a cold front does more to our weather than just drop temperatures.

Before a front passes the weather conditions look like this:
Winds - South or Southwest
Temperature - Warm
Pressure - Falling steadily
Clouds - Increasing
Precipitation - Showers, storms. Especially along the leading edge of the front
Dew Point - High

Every weather event is different, but this is a good generalization of what a cold front does.
