NBC 5 Forecast: Cold Front Bringing Storms

The first afternoon of October was a hot one with unseasonably warm temperatures in the 90's, along with higher humidity.  Thursday will also be very warm, until a cold front pushes through North Texas late in the afternoon.  The highest chance of storms will be from about 3-7 PM for the DFW Metroplex, but those storms will be scattered at first, so that not everyone in the western half of our area will see rain.  But as the front pushes east of Dallas, the storms will congeal into a solid squall line, with the possibility of hail and high winds.  After the front clears the area Thursday night, it will quickly turn cooler and drier.  The weekend looks wonderful, with the coolest temperatures expected Saturday morning.

TONIGHT:  Mostly clear this evening, with increasing clouds before daybreak.  Low: 76.  Wind: S 10-15 mph.
