We run the risk of severe weather tomorrow early afternoon in our eastern third:
WARM FIRST WEEK OF NOVEMBER, COLD SECOND WEEK
It got into the 80′s again today for the third day in a row (and the 6th time in the first 10 days of November). All this is coming to an abrupt end as a strong cold front comes through north Texas tomorrow.
Tonight clouds will increase as those strong south winds continue (gusts hit over 40mph today at DFW). Lows will stay in the mid-60′s. There will be passing shower or two overnight and tomorrow morning but no storms.
Ahead of that cold front a dry line comes in during the late morning. This should produce a thin but potent line of storms that cross over the metro area from 10am to Noon. These storms have the potential to produce 40-50mph winds along with lightning, there won’t be much rain; they’ll be moving very quickly.
When the line gets into our eastern counties they will likely start to reach severe threshold. Damaging winds and large hail are possible with these storms.
SOME COLD NIGHT AHEAD
The temperatures will start to drop late afternoon in the metro area so the cold front brings in much colder air. Lows overnight will get down into upper 30′s just north and northwest of the metro area. Highs on Monday only reach into the low 60′s as true fall weather finally arrives here in November for the first time.
Highs will stay in the 60′s for most of the work week. On Tuesday and Wednesday morning we’ll likely stay just above freezing in the metro area. I expect a freeze or frost warning for the counties west and north of the metro. The next storm chance looks to arrive next weekend.
