Metro Low Temps Today Auto Plota

It was chilly start this morning with a brisk north wind blowing. Temperatures dropped down into the 30’s for the first time this season in Fort Worth, to 43° at the DFW Airport (the coldest its’ been since early May).  The clouds cleared away early morning, the sunshine and low humidity made for a great day. Highs stayed in the 60’s with dewpoints in the 30’s (very dry air).

Tonight under clear skies we’ll have temperatures fall down back into the 40’s. A south wind shows up to save us from temperatures getting down toward the 30’s:

The south wind and sunshine will lift our temperatures into the low 70’s; an absolutely great day to attend the Fort Worth Air Show. Gates open at 9am, the shows start just after 10am. Admission is free, $20 to park:

The deep upper-air trough that brought us the cold morning is lifting to the north. This allows for highs in the 70’s on Monday before another cold front arrives:

We’ll awake on Monday morning with lows in the 50’s and a south wind. The wind shifts late in the day to the north as the front passes through. The rain chances are rather small across north Texas as the front comes through. The best chance will be southeast of the metro area but that north wind will make for a low in the 40’s Tuesday morning:
