It was cold again this morning minus the wind from the day before.  The lack of wind helped readings drop into the upper 20s in some parts of North Texas.  We also had a little light fog develop as the relative humidity approached 100%.  Just goes to show that the humidity can be 100% and it not rain.

Tonight will be chilly again, but with fewer freezing temperatures.  After tonight, south winds will really take over and don’t expect more cold nights for the rest of the week.

Next week, there will be a cold front that finally gets dislodged from the massive complex of storm systems in Pacific and Gulf of Alaska.  This will not be an Arctic front, so temperatures behind won’t be bitterly cold, but the front will help trigger a few showers and thunderstorms next Tuesday.  Still looking like the best chance of rain will be along and east of I35.  But the storms will be fast-moving and probably won’t give us just a whole lot of rain.

And we could definitely use rainfall in North Texas.  This will be one the top ten driest autumns on record in DFW.  In fact, we had more rainfall during the summer (June-July-August) than we’ve had this fall.

While we wait for next week’s rain chance, it’s going to be very warm and breezy.  There will be generally more clouds Thursday – Monday, especially during the morning hours.  But tonight is last night to have that fire in the fireplace for the next week at least.
