Another Comfortable Morning - Another comfortable morning as we wake up in North Texas; not to hot and not too cold. Arlington, TX reports a temperature of 53 degrees just before sunrise. A light jacket may be needed as you head out the door this morning. Most locations are in the 50s under a clear sky.
We expect another cloudless sky today with temperatures reaching the low 80s this afternoon. And no real change on Friday; mostly sunny, pleasant days with cool nights. Highs will remain in the upper 80s on both days with lows in the 60 degree range in most spots.
The Weekend - This is where our weather gets a little bit interesting. The cold front arrives Saturday night/early Sunday morning. Along and ahead of that, severe weather remains a possibility for both days, where the SPC has introduced an "enhanced" risk for severe weather in some parts of north Texas.
Keep in mind that this outlook for Saturday is valid through 7 AM on Sunday. During Sunday afternoon, a severe squall line will begin to develop in west Texas and make its way east during the overnight hours. Damaging straight-line winds will be the greatest threat, but, a few tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Ultimately, it doesn't matter where you are on this map. If you are under a severe weather risk of any kind, you are still in fair game of getting something. More details to come tomorrow.
After the cold front comes through, we are left much cooler with highs in the low 70s. Bring a jacket and a umbrella for the likely wet commute ahead, if anything lingers around.
Football Weather - A great night in store for us for high school football games tomorrow night. The temperature will generally fall from the low 80s at kickoff to near the mid 70s by the final whistle.
Summit High School hits the road once again to take on Red Oak High School (kickoff @ 7:30p). We will need to mention the slight chance of a shower or two during the game. Otherwise, expect mostly overcast conditions with the temperature falling from 78 at kickoff to near 70 by the end of the fourth quarter.
Next Week - Not much change. After the cold front from the weekend, expect mostly sunny and pleasant conditions and cool nights with highs remaining in the low 70s.
Tropics - The Atlantic Basin remains quiet, and no new tropical storms are expected for the rest of the week. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
