UNSETTLED WEATHER RETURNS - Clouds will return to North Texas today, and we expect any rain to be scattered and light throughout the state this afternoon and tomorrow. The high this afternoon will be in the low 60s for many communities. Clouds will continue to stick around tomorrow and into some parts of Friday, and we will mention rain at times both days. We will reach the upper 50s tomorrow, but temperatures on Friday will cool down to the low 50s as the coldest air of the season rolls in from the north. The sky will clear Friday afternoon.
THE WEEKEND - Sun will return to the region for the weekend, but temperatures will stay well below average for mid-November. We expect lows to be around the 32-38 degree range both mornings, but the colder pockets will reach the freezing mark. The average first freeze in DFW is usually November 22, so we will be two weeks early if this happens.
NEXT WEEK - Our next push of cold air will come as soon as Monday hits. This time, we expect some rain at times ahead of the cold air on Monday. Yes, the GFS does show some wintery precipitation across the Texas Panhandle Monday afternoon, but it looks like temperatures will not be cold enough for winter precipitation to reach North Texas at this time, but we will continue to keep an eye on it. Sunshine will return Wednesday, but we may drop to the 20s in some spots early Wednesday morning. The record low for November 7 is 29°, set in 1959. We may come close to that... See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS - The Atlantic Basin continues to remain quiet for the rest of the week.
