Brr! Weekend Cooldown in North Texas -- Highs Only In 60s And Low 70s

Oct 4, 2013

Is sweater weather around the corner?

Expect a cooldown overnight across North Texas. On Saturday, temperatures could be up to 20 degrees cooler. Temperatures could fall into the 50s in parts of Dallas-Fort Worth during the early morning hours. (Best bet for that is in Denton County and to the counties west and north of Denton, the National Weather Service reports.)

In Dallas-Fort Worth, expect highs in the 70s around 8 a.m. But temperatures will drop quickly – into the 60s by noon.

Expect some scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms, as well as gusty north winds up to 20 mph.
