Fall, Is That You? Finally? - With 90 degree days done and over with (hopefully) for the rest of this year, must cooler air floods the region once again this morning, behind a strong cold front. Most locations surrounding DFW are in the upper 40s, but DFW is no exception to the chilly morning, with a recorded temperature of 50 degrees as of 5:35. A light jacket will be needed as you head out the door this morning, and you may want to just hang on to it for the rest of the day, with temperatures only reaching the mid 70s at most across North Texas.
The same weather is in store for us on Tuesday; a chilly morning with a comfortable afternoon in store. Highs will be in the middle 70s once again. Keep that jacket handy for Tuesday as well.
Midweek - Not much change, other than a warmer start to the morning. Abundant sunshine sticks with us even on Wednesday, with highs reaching the low 80s in most spots, but no 90 degree weather anywhere. Rainfall is not expected until next week. We still start the day in the mid 50s in most spots.
Friday is another pleasant day with a cool start to the morning with highs sticking in the mid 80s, perfect weather for high school football games during the night.
The Weekend - Not much change on Saturday. We still stick with mostly sunny weather with highs in the mid 80s with cool nights. By Sunday, another cold front makes its way through North Texas, bring scattered to perhaps numerous showers and storms throughout the day on Sunday. Global models suggests heavy rain in store for some places across the region.
Next Week - After the cold front goes through, bringing the chance of scattered/numerous showers and storms throughout the day on Monday, we should be back to 70 degree weather for the early part of next week with clear days and cool nights ahead.
Tropics - Ophelia is now on the northeast corner of the Atlantic Basin, and is continuing to threaten Ireland as a post-tropical cyclone, which should lose its tropical characteristics by Wednesday.
Another wave (Invest 92L) that is to the north of the Turks and Caicos Islands have a medium chance of development over the next five days. If anything happens to form, it should recurve into the open Atlantic, posing no threat to the U.S. The rest of the Atlantic Basin, is quiet. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
