Cold Weather Expected In Dallas This Week. Check The Latest Update On The Duration Of The Cold Spell

Dallas, TX: Dallas-Fort Worth might experience some winter-like weather this weekend.

Prepare for a significant drop in temperatures this weekend as a cold front sweeps through North Texas, bringing chilly conditions in the 20s and 30s, as reported by the National Weather Service Fort Worth office. The Metroplex hasn’t had to deal with frigid temperatures since January, when the area experienced several days of freezing lows in the teens and 20s.

“Saturday night will be the coldest night through the next several days with lows in the upper 20s to low 30s,” Fort Worth meteorologist Madi Gordon writes on the NWS web site. “Highs Saturday will top out in the mid 40s to low 50s.”

The NWS states that there will be continued breezy conditions with sustained wind speeds of 15 to 25 mph and gusts up to 35 mph possible. Warmer weather is on the way after a chilly weekend, as temperatures are set to rise above normal next week. Expect highs in the 60s and 70s.

The week began with unseasonably warm temperatures, reaching above 70 degrees, following previous discussions of potential rain and snow in North Texas. Expect breezy conditions to pick up midweek, followed by the arrival of a cold front towards the end of the work week. The NWS report indicates that the chance of rain is low (20%) and it is expected to primarily occur south of Dallas-Fort Worth.

Skies over North Texas will remain mostly clear except for transient cirrus clouds for most of Wednesday. Windy conditions intensify as a southerly wind gains strength. Clouds will start to roll in on Thursday, accompanied by persistent gusty winds.
