RADAR CHECK - The line of heavy showers and thunderstorms is currently exiting North Texas, mainly moving more to the northeast. There are currently no severe weather warnings in effect for the state. Only a few reports of pea-quarter sized hail were observed this morning, but the roads on wet, so allow a few more minutes for the commute.
The cold front has basically moved through north Texas at this point, so temperatures are already starting to go the wrong way. DFW recorded a temperature of 69° as of 4:42, but that has already fallen to 63° at the time I am writing this update. Sun will return later today, but we will already be well into the low 40s by the time it comes out. We fall even more, eventually ending up in the mid 20s by tomorrow morning.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND - We turn mostly cloudy and dry with another surge of cold air. Highs will mostly be in the low 40s by the afternoon hours. With some leftover moisture in the south, I wouldn't be too surprised if we see a few sleet pellets for areas to the south of DFW. Also, with a brisk 12 northeast wind, it will feel more like the upper 20s with any wind gusts we experience. Saturday will be very similar in nature; mostly cloudy and cold with highs in the low 40s.
We warm a few degrees on Sunday, but moisture starts to increase again, and we will mention rain at times throughout the afternoon and evening. Afternoon highs will be in the low 50s.
NEXT WEEK - Rain will continue to linger through Monday, before eventually tapering off in the evening. Expect a very slow increase in temperatures next week with mostly a mix of sun and clouds. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
