Breezy but very nice day today with highs reaching into the low 70’s. Winds gusts reached up past 30-mph this afternoon with the relative humidity around 20%. These conditions created a high risk for grass fires; one got going inside Tarrant County right around I-20 this afternoon; we could see the smoke plume from our Fort Worth Tower Cam:

Fort Worth Firefighters quickly had this grass fire controlled. No damage was reported.


Strong south winds will continue overnight with the humidity starting to increase. Low level cloud cover should greet our Monday morning along with some passing showers. This would be light rain. Below you can see how FutureSky Forecast puts scattered showers in the DFW metro area for the morning commute. Coverage will be widely scattered:

The next system starts to close in on us on Wednesday night and Thursday morning. This system is much stronger than the one tomorrow. There is a chance of severe weather and heavy rain with this event. Below you can see the best rain chances are in the early morning hours on Thursday:

This system should clear our area by later in the morning. It appears will be dry next weekend with temperatures in the 60’s.
