Cold Front Timing & Karen In The Gulf
Finally an opportunity to wear a jacket or a coat. Temperatures this weekend will finally feel fall like.
The much-anticipated cold front is still on track to arrive Saturday morning. I expect the front to arrive in DFW between about 7am and 11am. Behind the front temperatures will fall into the 60s for much of the day on Saturday.
If you have soccer games on Saturday grab the warmer clothes and the umbrella. There will be a few scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. Rain chances will be highest in the morning, but a few lingering showers into the afternoon.
Here’s where the front is located as of 3pm Thursday.
Here’s a look at temperatures this weekend.
SATURDAY 3PM – Winds gusting to 25 mph out of the north, an isolated shower still possible.
SUNDAY 8AM- Partly cloudy and chilly. North wind 5-15 mph
SUNDAY 11AM – Partly Sunny and chilly. North wind 10-20 mph.
TROPICAL STORM KAREN
Karen is just north of the Yucatan Peninsula in the Gulf of Mexico. It has gained strength today with 4pm update showing winds at 65 mph. It becomes a hurricane with winds at 74 mph.
TRACK OF KAREN
Karen could stregthen to a hurricane as it moves north. It will likely make landfall anywhere from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle. Right now it looks like it would be a tropical storm when it makes landfall. This will be a big rain maker for the southeast and also produce some strong gusty winds east of the center.
There are Tropical Storm Warnings and Hurricane Watches posted for parts of the Central Gulf Coast.
