Strong cold front headed for Dallas-Fort Worth to drop lows into the 50s

The National Weather Service issues a wind advisory for most of North Texas, including Dallas, Denton, Collin and Tarrant counties, from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday.

Get ready for sweater weather.

After a warm weekend, a strong cold front is headed for North Texas that will bring the chance for storms, KXAS-TV (NBC5) weather anchor Keisha Burns said. The front is expected to move through Dallas-Fort Worth late Sunday.

“There will be a threat of rain, but it’ll end quickly,” Burns said. “Then you’re looking dry for the rest of the day [Monday] and the rest of the week for that matter.”

Widespread severe weather isn’t expected, but some areas farther north — such as parts Collin and Denton counties — could get gusty winds and small hail as the front moves through, she said.

Ahead of the front’s arrival, the National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for most of North Texas, including Dallas, Collin, Tarrant and Denton counties, from 9 p.m. Sunday through 5 a.m. Monday.

Gusts up to 40 mph could toss around unsecured outdoor items such as lawn furniture, and winds could make driving more difficult for high-profile vehicles such as tractor-trailers, the weather service cautioned.

After the front moves through, Dallas-Fort Worth is set for a cool week with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s, Burns said.

The cool weather will last, thanks to another cold front that is set to move through the area Thursday, said Juan Hernandez, a weather service meteorologist.

“A reinforcing shot of cool air will arrive Thursday evening from the northeast,” he said. “The arrival of this cold front will lead to highs on Friday about 5-10 [degrees] cooler compared to Thursday.”

Here’s what KXAS-TV (NBC5) has in the forecast.

Sunday: 89/69

Monday: 73/60; overnight storms

Tuesday: 77/55

Wednesday: 82/54

Thursday: 80/59
