ANOTHER COLD MORNING - Temperatures across North Texas are in the 20-30 degree range with colder temperatures in the north. Not quite a freeze here in the DFW Metroplex, but the good news is we will rebound nicely to the low 60s for highs today with a mostly sunny sky. The wind will shift to the southwest as the trough in the Great Lakes continues to move northeast.
We fall to the low 40s Wednesday morning, but again we rebound nicely to the mid 60s with mostly sunny skies. Then, Thursday will be sunny with highs in the low 70s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND - A good part of Friday remains mostly sunny and dry with highs in the low 70s by the afternoon. A storm system will move through during the day, but confidence is increasing that the instability in North Texas will not interact with the moisture from the Deep South to cause a severe weather threat for North Texas, so the SPC has shifted the risk of severe storms eastward, further into the Deep South and Lower Mississippi River Valley. We could see an overnight chance of a few scattered showers and thunderstorms, but the best chance of any one spot getting wet is only in the 20-30 percent bracket at this time.
The rest of the weekend looks very nice. Saturday will be a comfortable day with a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the mid 60s. We get rid of the clouds on Sunday, and highs will be in the mid 60s again. Very comfortable weekend conditions.
NEXT WEEK - A relatively quiet pattern continues, staying mostly dry for most of next week, followed by another blast of cold air towards the latter half of the week. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS - The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season ends this Friday, and tropical cyclone development is not expected anytime during this week. The 2019 season begins June 1, 2019.
