This upcoming weekend will be quite different from this past weekend. A shot of colder air will make for a chilly weekend with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s on Saturday and Sunday! Until then, temperatures will be mild in the afternoons and cool in the morning.
A cool night as temperatures fall into the 40s under mostly clear skies and light winds.
We will start the day with some sunshine, but clouds will increase in the afternoon. Mild temperatures again with highs around 70 degrees.
SMALL RAIN CHANCE TOMORROW NIGHT
There will be a small chance of a few showers tomorrow night into early Wednesday morning mainly for areas south and west of DFW. Here is a look at where rain is likely to be located around midnight tomorrow night.
STORM CHANCES LATER THIS WEEK
There will be the chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday night into Friday. The timing differs between our forecast models. One model (the GFS) slows down the front and gives us a chance of severe storms on Friday. The other model (the European) has the front coming thru Thursday night with less of a storm chance and cooler air spilling in on Friday. No way to say with 100% certainty which one is correct, but the European has handled cold fronts better over the past few months than the GFS. So I will favor the European.
Behind this system Thursday night into Friday, we feel more winter like. Below is a look at the upper level wind pattern this weekend. Cold air will spill out of Canada and head straight into Texas. This will mean highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
