Red Flag Warning for parts of North Texas this afternoon, but when will we see a cool down?

A spring-like start to the week has come to an end.

DALLAS — Quick Summary: 

  • Red Flag Warning Wednesday afternoon for western counties
  • Cooler air moves in by Thursday through the weekend
  • Another round of rain arrives Saturday

En español: El cálido mes de enero continúa. ¿Cuándo veremos un enfriamiento?

A front brought a chance for showers and storms this morning. Scattered rain brought accumulations less than .10 of an inch through the early afternoon.

Rain has moved east. A higher severe threat looks to take aim at East Texas and Louisiana during the afternoon Wednesday. Strong winds and hail will be the main threat.

Critical Fire Danger Wednesday 

Today's cold front leaves behind a breezy west wind across North Texas along with low humidity. The ongoing drought adds to the dry fuels in our western counties leading to high fire danger. It'll be best to avoid outdoor burning and activities that lead to sparks. If a fire were to start, it'll spread quickly.
