Another weekend cool-down underway for North Texas, but thankfully this weekend won't be as chilly as last weekend.
Winds from the northwest will be gusty today continuing to bring cooler than normal air into the area. In fact, highs today will be about 20° to 30° cooler than Friday.
Wind gusts of 35 mph to 45 mph are possible throughout today, so a Wind Advisory is in effect for Dallas-Fort Worth and areas to the west. This same area has elevated fire danger today as well.
As we head into the nighttime hours, winds will calm and skies will stay clear, which means a chilly night for North Texas. Temps in the 30s are likely for all of North Texas by Sunday morning with even a light freeze for some.
Areas along the Red River and northwestern portions of North Texas have the best chance at seeing freezing temps. A Freeze Watch is in effect for late tonight into Sunday morning for those locations, and covering tender vegetation or bringing plants indoors is a good idea!
Sunday will feature a good deal of sunshine with afternoon temps in the 60s. Winds will be breezy from the northwest, but not as strong as Saturday.
A bigger warm-up returns to start the workweek with upper 70s for highs by Monday. Even warmer Tuesday with 80s in the forecast. Both Monday and Tuesday will feature breezy southerly winds.
No rain or storm chances until the end of the week into next weekend. Exact details, timing, severe chances, etc. are still not set in stone at this point. As of now, showers and storms are possible sometime Friday, Friday night, and into Saturday morning. We'll be watching and keep you up to date with the latest forecast!
