From sun and seventy on Valentine’s Day to windy, chilly and light rain on this last day of the workweek. A cold front came through overnight and cleared all of North Texas early this morning. Post-frontal clouds and light rain are occurring well behind the front. With dry air at the surface, most of the rain is evaporating and leaving light rain to sprinkles making it to the ground.
We’ll call for spot sprinkles through the morning hours with temperatures holding in the 40s under cloudy skies.
By the afternoon, we’ll get broken clouds with north winds remaining breezy and temperatures holding in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Tonight we still expect a few isolated flurries mixed in with light rain from an upper level disturbance we’ve been advertising all week. The air will be very dry and not much is expected to even accumulate let alone wet the roads, hardly worth setting the alarm to catch. The timing will be between 1 AM to 6 AM. Temperatures will be in the 30s and north breezes should stay on through the morning hours.
Expect skies to clear quickly Saturday morning, but even with the sunshine temperatures will top out in the lower 50s and north winds will begin to ease in the middle of the afternoon. That means watching the kids at soccer practice will be chilly through 2 PM. Grab those throw blankets!
This weekend is going to be a roller coaster in terms of ups and downs. While Saturday stays chilly, Sunday really gets heats up as we tap into a very strong south wind and warmer air. Moisture will return on those south winds and you will start to feel it by Sunday evening. High temperatures will be running 10-12 degrees above norm.
The warm front will come through the region dry early on Sunday, however the cold front behind it will touch off showers and storms from the Metroplex eastward during the day Monday. Right now the timing looks like after the morning commute through the midday. Rain chances looking like 20 percent for the Metroplex and 30-40 percent to the east.
