DALLAS Good news: Friday will be one of the last gloomy, dreary days for a while.

Rain is coming to an end from west to east as dry air filters in behind our Pacific cold front. The air has stayed saturated today with dewpoints in the 60s, but now dewpoints have dropped into the 20s west of Fort Worth.

The front will be well east of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area Friday night with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms possible in East Texas. North Texas will have a quiet Friday night with temperatures dropping into the low 40s.

Clouds will roll out overnight and leave abundant sunshine on Saturday. Since this cold front is Pacific in nature, North Texas will not experience a drastic temperature drop behind the front. However, temperatures will be just a little cooler in the mid to upper 60s Saturday afternoon. Low temperatures will again bottom out in the low 40s overnight into Sunday.

South winds return Sunday ahead of yet another front that will sweep through Sunday night. This will remain a dry front with no rain chances in the forecast. Temperatures Sunday will soar into the low 70s under sunny skies.

Sunday's front will bring in a shallow shot of cool air for the beginning of next week. Monday's highs will be in the low 60s.
