The winds of change have arrived in North Texas, which most of you have definitely felt this morning. Northerly wind gusts of 30 mph to 40-plus mph have been observed across the area. Winds will continue to stay gusty the rest of today, but will slowly become less blustery this afternoon into evening.
After the warmest day of the day year so far on Saturday, 80-degree temps will be a distant memory this afternoon. Highs in the upper 50s to low 60s will be common. Clouds will linger this morning before clearing from north to south this afternoon. Most of North Texas should see some sunshine by late afternoon into evening.
With clear skies and calmer winds overnight, temps will fall quickly becoming quite chilly by Monday morning. You'll definitely need the jackets again as temps tomorrow morning will be in the 30s and 40s!
Even with sunshine tomorrow, highs will only reach the upper 50s and low 60s. Cool, but dry days will be around for the start of the week with morning lows in the 30s and 40s and afternoon highs in the 60s through Wednesday.
The second half of the week will feature warmer temps with 70s returning on Thursday and 80s by Friday. Next weekend will feature highs in the 80s as well. Rain chances are zero for the upcoming week, but do return next weekend. As of now, some passing showers or storms are possible next Saturday and Sunday, but coverage and chances look low (10-20%). With it being St. Patrick's Day weekend, and likely plenty of outdoor plans, we'll keep a close eye on those rain chances and update throughout the week!
