For Texas Rangers fans and Friday night football fanatics, it may still feel like a nice night to be outdoors at the start of games this evening.

But don't be fooled.

The colder weather is coming.

At lunchtime, it was still 70 degrees in Gainesville but just a few miles up the road in Ardmore, Okla, it had dropped to 54 degrees

While the temperature may still be in the mid-to-upper 60s across parts of North Texas at the start of those games, it won't last for long.

"By 10 p.m., it should be down in the 50s," said National Weather Service meteorologist Jesse Moore. "There will be a really strong northern wind as the front comes through."

On Saturday morning, it will be around 50 degrees and remain blustery throughout the day with temperatures never climbing out of the low to mid-50s and light rain or drizzle.

Any rain that falls will be fairly light but there will be a chance of rain throughout the day but probably not enough to rain out events. But it will feel like fall.

"It will be quite chilly and it will be the coolest on Sunday morning when temperatures drop into the upper 40s," Moore said.

Temperatures will recover into the 70s on Monday and the 80s on Tuesday.

"It is October," Moore said. "This is the time of year when we should start seeing cold fronts and fall weather. This one is just a little stronger than what we typically see. There won't be any frosts or freezes but it will feel like fall."
