Breezy, warm and humid conditions still in place across North Texas until the midday hours.  Temperatures this morning only dipped to the 70 degree mark for most areas under partly cloudy skies and breezy south winds.  The south breezes and partly cloudy skies will carrying temperatures close to the 80 degree mark just before the cold front arrives this afternoon.  Here’s how things look around 2 pm:

Cold Front Approaches Quickly

The cold front will be in after the lunch hour and should be over the Metroplex around 2pm – 3pm.  And you won’t miss the front as it passes by.  Winds will gust from the northwest at 30-35 mph and will sustain at 15-25 mph through the overnight hours and into tomorrow.   Small rain chances exist along the entire length of the front, but overall they are looking small at only 20 percent for most areas.  Temperatures will tumble behind the front with about a 20 degree drop extended over a 2-3 hour period.  Tomorrow morning it will be in the 40s for all of North Texas.

Chilly Mornings Ahead

We are forecasting low temperatures in the 40s tomorrow morning, but 30s and 40s Saturday and Sunday morning.  At this point, skies look to stay cloudy through Friday morning and this should prevent most areas from dipping into the 30s.  However, clear skies Saturday will bring about 30s for most areas except for metro Dallas with some pushing close to the freezing mark Saturday morning.  Here are the low temperature forecasts for Friday and Saturday morning:
