Cold Start - Many places are just above the freezing mark this morning across North Texas, and we project a high in the 65-70 degree range in most spots today. A few mid and high level clouds will be possible due to a jet stream wave approaching, but we will continue to stay dry with no rain expected this week. We remain sunny and dry to finish the week.
Friday Through Weekend - The weather will continue to be dry through the weekend with cool nights and pleasant days with abundant sunshine. We start the days mostly in the 50s, warming to the low 70s.
Football Weather - For the high school playoff games Friday evening, the game should be played under a clear sky with temperatures falling through the 60s.
Highland Park hosts Mansfield Summit High School at SMU's stadium (kickoff @ 7:30p). The game will be played under fair conditions with temperatures falling into the low 60s during the game.
Next Week - As we get closer towards early December, it is now starting to become evident that a big pattern change will take place. First, a cold front will bring a batch of scattered showers and thunderstorms as early as Monday evening. A few of the storms may be strong, but no signs of any major severe weather issues anytime soon. As that happens, a deep trough sets up in the eastern part of the U.S., which will send down the coldest air thus far in the season starting Wednesday with highs mostly in the low 50s and lows in the mid to upper 30s.
