Some cities like Dallas, TX went from 100 degrees on Monday to a high on Tuesday near 80!
Today's forecast temperatures on average run about 20 degrees cooler behind the front compared to yesterday when looking at the Deep South.
As temps have drastically dropped they've also fallen below average for this time of year.
Thursday, the cooler and more comfortable conditions make it to the Gulf coast and I-10 Corridor.
Biggest thing to note with the cooler air will also be the lower dewpoints! This means it'll be crisp and chilly in the mornings along with very little humidity impacting the afternoons!
The strength of the trough takes the moisture content way down through the end of this week and into the weekend.
The lower the dewpoint temperature the more comfortable it feels in the afternoon.
