The Week Ahead In North Texas
It was the second morning in a row of cold temperatures. It was freezing or below just to the west and north of downtown Fort Worth. The official low at DFW was 38° for the second morning in a row.
Last weekend the overnight low Sunday morning was 74°, breaking the record for the warmest morning ever on that date.
Of course with all that sunshine, low humidity and low winds just a perfect Sunday afternoon transpired. Highs reached into the mid-60’s, about ten degrees below normal for this time of year. I doubt anyone complained. Something to be said about seeking the sun in north Texas on an blue-sky afternoon day. We spend such a large part of the year looking for shade during those hours.
NOT AS COLD TONIGHT, WARMER TOMORROW
Lows tonight won’t be as cold and as winds turn to the southeast tomorrow afternoon it’ll end up to a little warmer.
As high pressure moves to our southeast into the Gulf we bask in a return flow for the rest of the work week. Highs will leap into the upper 70’s Tuesday and Wednesday. Halloween Night will be absolutely perfect. It’ll be in the 80’s for Thursday and Friday. By Sunday we’ll have a Pacific tropical cyclone help bring moisture into Texas and give us a good chance of storms for the second half of the weekend:
Lows tonight will again drop down into the 30’s, mostly upper 30’s in the metro area. Denton and McKinney will again get down the freezing mark.
Monday we’ll near 70 and by Thursday be in the low 80’s. The irony is that the strength and size of Sandy is going to keep us in an upper northwest flow that will keep us dry and mild.
Weather is looking just wonderful for Trick or Treat night. Highs that day will be in the mid-70’s with light winds. Temperatures will drop to the upper-60’s by mid-evening. Skies will be mostly clear.
