3 cold fronts this week
3 cold fronts this week will leave Dallas-Fort Worth in the 30s by the weekend
A series of cold fronts this week will take Dallas-Fort Worth from warm weather Monday to nearly freezing temperatures by week’s end.
Temperatures hit 81 degrees at DFW International Airport on Monday, but by Friday morning North Texas could see lows in the mid-40s.
That’s November for you,” KXAS-TV (NBC5) meteorologist Grant Johnston said. “November is notorious for big temperature swings.”
The first cold front made its way through North Texas on Monday, but it didn't make much of an impact — Johnston called it "weak." The next two cold fronts will be progressively stronger.
Here’s what you can expect this week:
Election Day — 75/57, mostly sunny
Voters won’t be able to use bad weather as an excuse to not get to the polls. High temperatures are expected to be in the mid-70s on Tuesday.
Rain isn't expected during the day, but NBC5 meteorologist Samantha Davies said isolated showers could pop up during the late evening hours and after midnight.
Wednesday — 63/57
The second cold front of the week will move through North Texas on Wednesday and bring a chance of rain. Wednesday’s rain isn’t expected to be very widespread, Johnston said. Forecast models show a better chance of rain early in the morning, then clearing out in the afternoon.
Thursday — 56/52, showers likely
Rain chances will increase Thursday and become more widespread, Johnston said. No severe weather is expected in Dallas-Fort Worth, but a few scattered thunderstorms are possible.
Friday — 52/42, windy and cold
The third and final front of the week will be the strongest, plunging low temperatures into the mid-40s. Friday’s high is forecast at 52 degrees, but Johnston said, “We might be lucky to get to 50.”
The front could be strong enough to give areas along the Red River the potential for frost, according to the National Weather Service.
