A slow moving cold front pushed through the metro area at the end of the day Saturday. It produces some strong storms. There was a report of 1″ hail south of Fate and Rockwall County. 1″ rainfall amounts were also reported across Rockwall, northern Kaufman County and the southeast corner of Dallas County.
Lows started this morning in the 50′s (40′s up in Wise and Jack counties and along the Red River) and will be cooler than the weather of late.
In the warmer air to the south there is a chance of rain or storms, mostly in the morning hours:
The work week will start very nice, highs will be in the 70′s with dry weather. Winds start to pick up on Friday, highs will get in the low 80′s again.

A strong Nor’Easter looks to hit the east coast recovery zone by Wednesday and Thursday. Still storm will bring damaging winds and high surf to the hard-hit areas where Sandy hit last week.
