Get Ready for a Big Drop in Temperature

A cold front rolled into North Texas late Monday night with rain, lightning and wind, chasing off the lingering warm weather.

Quick-moving storms dumped heavy rains, and some parts of North Texas reported 60 mph winds.

The storms are expected to move out of the area by early Tuesday morning, leaving behind cooler temperatures.

Monday saw a high of 88, but Tuesday is only expected to reach into the upper 60s. Temperatures will rise the rest of the week into the 70s. (Read the full NBC 5 forecast.)
