A strong, but dry cold front pushed through the Metroplex around noon on Friday. Northerly winds picked up and began pulling down much cooler air from the north.
The weekend is expected to be much more Autumn-like with highs only in the 60s. Saturday will be windy & blustery and the cooler of the two weekend days with high temperatures below normal, only in the upper 50's to near 60.
The wind will be from the NW at 15 to 25 mph, and the combination of gusty winds and low humidities has prompted a Red Flag Warning for North Texas on Saturday.
Sunday morning will be the coldest of the season so far as high pressure settles in and brings clear skies, light winds and low humidity; perfect for radiational cooling. The temperature will drop to the mid 30's at DFW Airport. And many outlying communities will dip below freezing.
The coldest morning so far this season was on Oct. 28 when DFW Airport recorded a low temperature of 43 degrees. Temperatures Sunday morning will drop to the 30s across much of the area with some suburbs at or below freezing and possibly a few isolated 20s far away from Dallas and Fort Worth.
A gradual warmup begins on Sunday before our next cold front tries to push through the area on Monday.
