A beautiful fall weekend is in store for Texas as a cold front brings and end to the record breaking heat. Both Saturday and Sunday look to feature clear and sunny skies with light winds. Temperatures tonight will fall back into the low 40s across the Texas Panhandle and West Texas. A few lucky folks may even make it down to 38-39 degrees. Locations along and north of Interstate 10 are expected to fall into the 50s to around 60 degrees. Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley will fall into the 60s.
On Saturday we’re anticipating a much more fall like day with high temperatures in the 70s to low 80s across all areas except Central Texas, South Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley. Upper 80s to lower 90s are expected across Central Texas, South Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley. Still better than the upper 90s we saw earlier this week. It is worth noting that elevated fire danger will continue this weekend with low relative humidity.
A crisp fall night is forecast by Sunday morning across North Texas, Northeast Texas, East Texas, Central Texas, and Southeast Texas where temperatures will fall into the 40s to low 50s. Deep South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley will fall into the 60s.
Temperatures on Sunday will be similar to Saturday with slightly warmer temperatures across the Big Country and Concho Valley. Compared to Thursday and earlier this week high temperatures will be 15 to 20 degrees cooler this weekend across most of Texas.
Starting out the work week temperatures will still be cool but a few degrees warmer than what we will see this weekend for low temperatures. Overall we don’t see any sign of the summer heat returning for the next week at least. Perhaps we’re finally done with the annoying summer heat once and for all!
