Clouds and a slow moving cold front produced a much cooler day than yesterday. A nice run of temperatures lay ahead for us. The DFW airport hit 70° today at the noon hour; the rest of the afternoon was spent in the 60′s.
The front didn’t make it all the way across north Texas; it produced a wide range of temperatures/dewpoints across the area. It stayed in the 50′s all day with dewpoints in the 40′s in Gainesville (Cooke County). It got into the upper 70′s in Corsicana (Navarro County) with dewpoints in the 60′s.
A Low pressure system developing just northwest of the Texas panhandle is going to pull the stationary back north as a warm front. This could create some fog as the warmer/moist air gets pulled over the colder ground.
As the low passes over north Texas during the morning tomorrow a few storms could develop. The storm and rain chances look to stay just east of Dallas. All of this should be east of our area by mid-day.
Despite the northwest wind (the low will pull a cold front over us) we’ll have enough afternoon sunshine to warm the dry air up to the low 70′s. Nice 2nd half of the day.
Tuesday looks nice. There are small rain chances on Wednesday morning. It still appears that the best chance of rain falls on Thursday, the first full day of Spring.
Then a show of colder air settles in for the weekend. Friday and Saturday could have highs only in the 50′s. Morning lows could get close to freezing north and west of the metro area on Saturday morning.
