FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Temperatures dropped into the 20s and teens on Monday morning. DFW Airport saw a low of 27 degrees — the coldest temperature at the airport since February 17. A few locations across North Texas dropped to 19 degrees. Gainesville, Alliance Airport, Bridgeport and Denton all had lows of 19 degrees on Monday morning.
Temperatures on Monday night won’t be as cold, but it will still be chilly. Lows will drop into the lower 30s under clear skies. An area of low pressure will strengthen on the east side of the Rockies Monday night and into Tuesday. This will create a strong south wind here on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Temperatures on Tuesday will warm into the mid-60s, but it will be windy, so it won’t quite feel like it’s in the 60s thanks to those south winds gusting to 25 mph. Wednesday will be very warm and windy, with highs in the mid-70s. Gusts could approach 40 mph. The record high for Wednesday is 83 degrees.
Another cold front gets here on Wednesday night, and temperatures will drop into the 30s by Thursday morning. High temperatures on Thursday will only be in the 50s. Like the past couple of fronts, this one will come through dry.
An upper level disturbance will move overhead on Friday. This will create cloudy skies. Temperatures will stay in the 40s on Friday, and there could be a few light rain showers — but it doesn’t look too promising.
Expect some sunshine on the weekend, with high temperatures in the 50s on both Saturday and Sunday.
