Cool and Dry in the East; Turning Stormy in the Northwest

Much cooler temperatures behind a cold front will bring a feeling of fall to the East Coast today. In addition, an active fall storm pattern developing in the Pacific Northwest this week will bring areas of heavy rain and high elevation snow. Northern California will benefit from rainfall this week that will aid firefighters given the recent large wildfires. Read More >

The pleasant autumn weather will continue. After a cool start to the morning, temperatures will reach the 70s by early afternoon. The humidity will remain low. South winds will gradually return, but wind speeds will remain light.
The surface high that has kept the area cool will slowly drift east away from the region, allowing for the return of south breezes 10 to 15 mph and highs in the upper 70s and 80s each day. Humidity will slowly be on the rise, with a fast moving system by Friday bringing a few showers and thunderstorms to the area. No severe weather is expected, though occasional lightning strikes will pose a hazard for outdoor activities.
There will be a low potential for showers and a few thunderstorms on Saturday, mainly across eastern zones. The better threat for more organized thunderstorms will be late Saturday into Sunday. A few storms will have the potential to be strong with gusty winds, hail, and lightning right along a strong cold front. We'll continue to refine the storm hazards as we get closer to the coming weekend.

NOAA Weather Radio Coverage

Scroll Down This Page For A County Coverage Listing that Includes FIPS Codes

The map to the left depicts an estimated coverage pattern for the current array of NOAA Weather Radio transmitters across the forecast and warning responsibility area (County Warning Area) of the Fort Worth/Dallas office of the National Weather Service. 

Transmitters typically have a reliable range of 40 miles, but terrain features, quality of receivers, antenna locations, and various atmospheric conditions can affect the reliable reception range.

The map is provided simply as a guide to indicate where NOAA Weather Radio reception should be possible. In many case, as seen in the map, you may need to experiment with different frequencies to find the best reception in your area.
