SEVERE CLEAR - Temperatures are in the low 50s this morning with fair skies... Today will be another pleasant day with abundant sunshine with afternoon highs in the mid 70s later. :)
A cold front arrives late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning, which will keep lows in the upper 40s and highs in the low 60s. A few isolated showers/thunderstorms could develop from the front during the afternoon, but the best chance of a spot getting wet is only in the 20/30 percent category.
THURSDAY/FRIDAY - Temperatures will only continue to get colder from here. The cold front stalls in South Texas, and moisture will continue to overspread the region. Thursday's high will be in the mid 50s with lows in the upper 50s. Yes, we will still deal with scattered showers and thunderstorms. The best chance of any one spot getting wet is in the 50/50 category.
Not much change for Friday other than the fact that we will have a colder morning with lows in the upper 30s, as well as we get rid of rain chances. Some of the colder pockets could see some frost in some communities. Highs will only be in the low 50s, rendering a very chilly Friday.
THE WEEKEND - An upper high in the central High Plains pushes the coldest air of the season down south, as well as freezing and below freezing temperatures for parts of North Texas. Saturday's official morning low is 34°, but some of the colder spots will experience the first freeze of the season, ending the 2018 growing season in some spots. Elsewhere, you can expect widespread frost with temperatures hovering just above the freezing mark. Otherwise, expect another chilly day with highs only in the low 50s. Sunday will also be very chilly with highs in the mid 50s with overnight lows in the upper 30s.
NEXT WEEK - We stay below the mid 50 mark for highs for much of the workweek. We will likely see some frost each morning with morning lows mostly in the 30 degree range. Otherwise, most of next week looks dry.
And, as noted everywhere, the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) denotes an 80% chance of below average temperatures for the 6-10 day forecast period for North Texas and much of the Central US, meaning very chilly air is on the way. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
