    NBC 5 Forecast: One More Decent Chance for Rain
    NBC 5

    It's a warm start to September in North Texas. Just when we thought we were done with the triple digits, they’re back! We average one 100-degree day in September at the Dallas Fort Worth-International Airport, but, we could see two 100-degree days before the weekend is over. The most 100 degree days the Dallas Fort-Worth airport has seen in September is seven in 2000.

    While September typically begins warm, average temperatures tend to fall about 10 degrees over the course of the month. By Sept. 30, normal highs are in the mid-80s while normal lows are in the mid-60s.

    Fall is officially a little over two weeks away (Sept. 23), but unfortunately long-range models and Climate Prediction Center outlooks don’t reflect cooling temperatures anytime soon. In fact, temperatures are forecast to remain above normal for the next two weeks.

    Typically, North Texas experience the first significant cold front of the year during the last 10-15 days of September. Looks like North Texas will have to wait a few more weeks for the first real taste of fall.

    Before the Storm
    Weather Safety

    Stay Safe During a Hail Storm
     
    At Home?
    • Head indoors immediately
    • If time allows, close all drapes, blinds or shades to prevent broken glass from entering your home.
    • Stay away from windows and skylights (any exterior glass) and head to a safe location inside your home, ideally only with interior walls.
    Outdoors?
    • Cover your head and seek shelter indoors immediately.
    • If you are trapped outside, get to a low-lying area and try to protect your head. Use clothing if it's all you have.
    Driving?
    • Stay inside your vehicle.
    • Slow down or pull over and stop at a safe location. DO NOT stop under a highway overpass. You may be protecting your vehicle, but you could be forcing other people to stop behind you.
    • Turn your back to windows or cover yourself with a blanket, coat or spare clothing to protect yourself from breaking glass.
    • If you have a sunroof, try to find something to protect your head.
