The chill has returned! And if you like warm temps, unfortunately, it doesn't look like it is going to get warm again anytime soon. Parts of North Texas will likely even see their first freeze of the season by Saturday morning!
Clouds stick around all day again with temps only warming into the mid-50s this afternoon. Another gray day in store.
While it won't rain all day long and won't rain constantly, showers will be out there. Showers stay scattered to spotty Thursday morning before increasing in coverage this afternoon into this evening. Rain will mainly come in the form of showers, but isolated thunderstorms are possible mainly south of the DFW area. Even if you see a t-storm, severe storms are very unlikely.
Showers will continue into tonight, but come to an end from north to south after midnight. By Friday morning, almost all showers will be gone from North Texas.
Friday is looking rain-free, and clouds will start to clear as well! By Friday afternoon, we'll have a return of mostly sunny skies. But even with some sunshine, temps will stay chilly. Highs on Friday will only be in the low to mid-50s.
The chill isn't going anywhere into the weekend either. In fact, a FREEZE WATCH is in effect for mainly northern North Texas (does not include Dallas or Fort Worth). A light freeze is possible in these areas Friday night into Saturday morning. Patchy frost will be possible in sheltered areas even if you are not under the Freeze Watch. If you have sensitive plants or vegetation, it is a good idea to take precautions to protect them. Temps will warm above freezing by mid-morning Saturday, but yet again it will be another chilly day with highs in the low 50s.
Chilly, but rain-free weather will be around this weekend. So no rain to ruin any plans, but outside activities will need jackets and layers.
Looking ahead to Monday, yet another strong cold front arrives bringing a reinforcing shot of cold air. This will keep temps chilly for the first half of next week as well. That front also brings back a chance for showers. It'll be cold with the front, but not cold enough for any issues with frozen precipitation locally. A cold, light rain will be possible.
