December Chill - We start the morning in the mid to upper 50s in most communities. We will actually drop to the upper 40s as we progress through mid morning, then we should warm to the lower 50s as we get closer to the afternoon. It should stay mostly cloudy throughout the day, and highs should generally stay below 55. The average high for DFW on December 5 is 60 degrees.
Another disturbance rolls in here during the overnight hours, and widespread showers will be possible beginning just before midnight. Rain should stay light, and rain amounts should stay generally below .10 of an inch. Rain could linger into the morning on Wednesday, but should clear during the afternoon, and we should stay in the low 50s for highs.
