Cool October Morning - Hmm... The temperature this morning seems to be just right; 56 at Arlington and DFW at 5:32. Not too cold or hot, but you may want to bring a light jacket this morning if you get cold easily.
A cold front that came through Monday evening will leave behind a cool October day with highs only reaching the low 70s to upper 60s, which is still five degrees above average.
Tomorrow Out - We still forecast sunny, pleasant days and cool, chilly nights. Highs should generally be in the 70s, with lows in the 50s. Some of the naturally cooler spots may reach the 40s in some spots. The one of the coldest days of the work week should be on Friday, where another cold front comes through by Thursday night, which should drop maximum temperatures to the low 60s and lows in the upper 30s.
The Weekend - It looks like that we could very well see our first frost of the season by Saturday morning with lows in the mid to upper 30s with potential for frost in some spots. The average first freeze in Texas is usually November 22, so we are just under a month early for this. It will sure feel more like January instead of October.
By Sunday, we should warm a good 10 degrees more which highs in the upper 60s in most spots. Lows should warm to the mid 40s in most spots.
Next Week - Although we are STILL about five degrees above in temperatures, we say goodbye to 80 degree weather for a while and hello to a real feel of fall. Highs will remain in the low 70s in most spots with abundant sunshine in full force.
Tropics - The Atlantic Basin is quiet now, but NHC suggests that a wave located in the northern Caribbean has a 50/50 chance of developing during the next five days. If anything does form, it should move on a east/northeast path, and should be a problem to the Gulf of Mexico. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
