Cloudy & Cooler With Scattered Showers Friday & Saturday

It's chilly this morning, but not as cold as the past few mornings. Clouds have also invaded North Texas, but no precipitation is anywhere nearby.

That will change later today as a strong upper-level disturbance slowly approaches from the West. Some light rain will start to move in by this evening and continue through most of the day tomorrow.

The track, speed, and strength of this disturbance will determine how much rain we will see, how long it will last, and how soon the clouds will move out late Saturday.

Right now, it looks like around a quarter of an inch of rain will fall across parts of North Texas. Heavier totals South of a Nacanowhere to Austin line.

Temperatures through Saturday will hover in the mid-forties before rebounding back in the mid to upper fifties on Sunday (57 degrees at sunset for the festival of lights...Hanukkah!). mid-sixties Monday and Tuesday and near 70 Christmas Day! Enjoy!

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and blessings for any festive holiday you celebrate. You all mean the world to me! Thank you for all of your support in 2019, Make 2020 the best year ever for you and your family...I know I am going to!
