National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

Tonight, lows will be in the mid to upper 40s for most areas, with lows in the lower 50s across urban portions of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. A few passing clouds are expected, but otherwise, look for mostly clear skies. Normal lows for this time of the year range from the mid 30s in our northwestern counties, to mid 40s in the urban areas. This means tonight's lows will be 5-10 degrees above normal for most areas.
It will be sunny and dry this weekend. A weak cold front will be moving through the region Saturday bringing winds around to the northeast and cooler, but still above seasonal normal, temperatures. Highs Saturday will be in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Lows Saturday night will be upper 30s northwest to the upper 40s southeast. Highs Sunday will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
The main storm tracks will remain to our north next week. This will result in continued dry weather with above seasonal normal temperatures.
