Love This Cooler Weather!

It is not very often you have a north wind in July.  Let alone temperatures in the 70s and 80s at 3pm!  This cooler weather is thanks to a front that has sagged south of DFW.  That has allowed a north wind to arrive.  The cloud cover and rain in the area has kept temperatures really comfortable.

Fourth of July Forecast:

Most of the day will be quiet on Friday.  I can’t rule out a few isolated showers and thunderstorms, but coverage should be low.  And any rain that is out there should fizzle out before fireworks start Friday evening.
