FORT WORTH -- A cold front moved through North Texas about 3 p.m. Thursday, dropping temperatures to the mid-60s at the drop of a hat.

The front, which will continue to move through the Metroplex throughout this evening, is packing wind gusts of 25 to 30 mph and brings a 30 percent chance of rain, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

Temperatures are expected to continue to plummet and by Friday morning it should be in the mid-40s, dropping into the high 30s Friday night.

"North winds will be about 20 to 25 mph behind the cold front," said meteorologist Jason Dunn with the weather service in Fort Worth.

The cold will be here a few days.

On Saturday morning, early risers could face temperatures in the mid-30s. The high on Saturday and Sunday will be in the 60s.

North Texas will start to warm up a little by Monday, when temperatures during the day will be in the 70s.

There's good news for Halloween fans on Wednesday as forecasters are calling for no rain, temperatures in the 70s during the day. In the evening when the ghostly times really kick off, temperatures will be in the 60s.
