Rain and 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 rains, and very high elevations could receive heavy snow. Wetting rains to the valley floors will spread south Thu and Fri into northern California,where active fires continue. Read More >

Monday night and Tuesday morning will feature some of the coolest temperatures since April/May for most of North and Central Texas with lows bottoming out in the 40s. Some upper 30s readings will be possible for areas to the west of the DFW Metroplex. Isolated areas of frost MAY occur IF temperatures dip closer to 37 degrees.
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.
