Low clouds and patchy fog will return overnight into tomorrow morning.  The most dense fog will be found areas to our south and east like Palestine, Fairfield, Jacksonville and Tyler.  But a few foggy spots will be around the metroplex.  Lows tonight will be in the upper 40s and low 50s.


Low clouds will be slow to lift and burn off during the morning, but we will see some sunshine and temperatures will warm to around 70 degrees.


A weak cold front will slide into the area tomorrow.  This will create a weak wind shift for areas N & W of DFW.  With the front hanging around Friday night into Saturday morning we could see a few areas of drizzle and light rain Saturday morning.


This will be the strong cold front which ushers in the cold air!  The timing of the front is still a little unclear as most models bring it thru DFW during the late morning and early afternoon.  However, the European model is a little slower not bringing the front thru until 5pm.  The timing will influence our high temperature for the day.  If the front is slower and moves thru in the late afternoon we will have highs in the 70s, but if comes thru in the late morning high temperatures will only be in the mid 60s.  The later front timing would also mean better rain chances.  But at this point, rain chances look pretty low except for areas east of Dallas.


Sunday night temperatures will drop to around freezing with strong north winds blowing.  Wind chills will be in the teens Monday morning.  The European model I mentioned above is also showing a small potential for wintry precipitation in far NW counties of North Texas like areas around Gainesville, Bowie, Henerietta, Jacksboro and Wichita Falls.  A lot of factors would have to come together to make this happen but it is something that I will be watching closely over the next few days.

Monday afternoon will see skies gradually clear with highs in the 40s!  It will feel much colder though because of breezy north winds still blowing.

Tuesday Morning will be the coldest morning so far this season with temperatures in the 20s and even rural areas in the 10s.


The Forecast Sunday morning for the Marathon calls for temperatures in the 60s with winds out of the south at 5-15 mph.  If the front arrives by mid morning, winds would turn to the north by the end of the race and would be quite gusty.
