Saturday high hit 70° at DFW Airport. Sunday starts in the upper 40’s and low 50’s with some patchy fog west of the I-35W:

The clouds will be slow to clear our western counties, highs will stay in the mid-60’s. The sun should break out late in the morning for the Fort Worth Marathon and towns east, highs should get into the upper 60’s:

Veterans Day is looking good. Some clouds but highs in the low 70’s:

The big story is the blast of cold air heading our way. A strong cold front should sweep over us early Tuesday morning. We are predicting the first freeze of the season, even the metro area will get close to the freezing mark. You can see the bitter cold air bottled up in northern Canada. It gets all the way to southern Texas and central Florida:

While highs are in the low 70’s on Monday, they are only in the low 50’s on Tuesday. By Wednesday morning its freezing:

Tuesday will have winds 20-30 mph out of the north so it’ll certainly be a WINTER COAT morning and day. Get those hats and gloves out for the kids! The extended shows we’ll get back to the 60’s for highs by next Friday and Saturday with slight rain chances both days:

Typhoon Haiyan arrives on the delta of the Hanoi River early in the day; I doubt it’ll be even a Category One hurricane. Heavy rains will be the main threat for northern Vietnam and southern China. When the strom was over the islands of Leyte and Samar in the Philippines winds could have been as high at 195 mph. These are measurements that are satellite derived so a full ground survey will have to be done. Rumors of Haiyan being the strongest hurricane ever (Typhoon is the west Pacific word for hurricane) are floating around because of these satellite measurements.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch. Saturday we had another minor earthquake west of Eagle Mountain lake near Springtown. That makes six quakes in this area since Tuesday. Today’s was the strongest. It takes a 4.0 usually to start doing damage:
