FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A very strong upper level system will be tracking into the Central Plains tonight.  This will push a Pacific Cold front through North Texas overnight.

There is the chance we could see an isolated shower or thunderstorm as that front pushes thru the area.  Right now there is a pseudo-dry line just west of Fort Worth.  Dew points in Breckenridge and Graham are in the 20 and 30s.  From DFW to the east dew points are in the 50s and 60s.

This moisture will stay with us until the Pacific Front arrives.  The energy from the upper level disturbance will be mainly north of the area, but there still could be a small chance of a storm overnight, less than 20%.

WINDY AND DRY FOR THE LAST DAY OF 2010

Winds will be strong tomorrow out of the west, gusting to 30 mph.  Temperatures will top out in the mid to low 60s.  We will likely see part of the area go under a Red Flag Warning tomorrow.

COLD AIR FOR THE NEW YEAR

Once the sun goes down Friday evening, temperatures will start to drop too.  By Midnight temperatures will be in the low 40s.  The weekend will be mostly to partly sunny and chilly.  Highs will be in the upper 40s on Saturday and Sunday.  Sunday morning will be quite cold starting in the mid 20s.
