A damp and cold Monday is expected with blustery winds. On Sunday, we reached a high of 72° at DFW Airport. Since then, the temperature dropped a good 20 to 30 degrees thanks to a potent cold front moving through the area.
Behind the front, a strong northwest wind will kick up to 15-20 mph, and the temperature will drop into the 40s. That means wind chill values will be down in the 30s to start the new work and school week. Make sure you and your kids are dressed warm.
In addition to plenty of clouds, some showers and areas of drizzle will be possible. Although the coverage will be pretty sparse, there could be some minor impacts from wet roads.
The clouds will likely stay thick through early Monday afternoon, but should start to break apart after 3 p.m. That will set the stage for a cold Monday night into Tuesday morning.
Temperatures dropped into the upper 30s and lower 40s Tuesday morning. With the northwest wind staying up in the 10-15 mph range, that will pull wind chill values down.
The rest of the week will gradually get warmer with 60s returning by the end of the week.
