Quiet Start - Another fairly mild start to the day in North-Central Texas; DFW holds 64 degrees this morning and Arlington holds 60. Despite the warm morning temperatures, highs should only reach the mid 70s today as a result of a stalled surface front in north Texas with abundant sunshine; perfect for the high school football games today.
Football Weather - For today's high school football games, most games will be played under a sunny sky with temperatures falling from the upper 60s by kickoff to the low 60s/upper 50s by the final whistle today.
Summit High School takes on their rival, Legacy High School, at Vernon Newsom Stadium this evening (kickoff @ 7:30p). For now, it looks like the game will be played under a clear sky with temperatures falling from 67 at kickoff to near 60 by the end of the first quarter. Most stadiums will remain dry.
The Weekend - The surface front lifts out of North Texas by Saturday, and we trend warmer with highs mostly in the mid to upper 80s with abundant sunshine. The projected high for DFW on Sunday is 88 degrees. The record high for DFW on November 5 is 88 degrees, set in 2005. If we can get any warmer than that, we may be at another record temperature day in DFW.
Next Week - After Monday, we go back to fall like temperatures as a result of the next cold front coming through. The GFS has backed off the idea of showers and storms on Tuesday, but we will need a bit more consistency to completely take it out of the forecast. But for now, we generally stay mostly dry with highs in the 60-80 degree range. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
Tropics - The Atlantic Basin remains quiet, and no new tropical storms is expected for the next five days.
