The National Weather Service in Fort Worth has issued a wind advisory for North Texas. Just before noon, winds at DFW Airport were blowing out of the south at around 30 mph, gusting to 37. Gusts to 39 mph were recorded Friday morning.

The advisory would last from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the weather service said. It affects most North Texas counties west of a line that extends from Sherman To Corsicana to Hearne. The advisory area includes Tarrant, Parker, Wise and Johnson counties.

It will also be warm with a forecast high in the low 80s.

Boaters should use caution on the water and residents may want to secure trash cans, lawn furniture and other light weight outdoor items, the weather service recommends.

Gusty winds are also expected Saturday along with a high of 78. However, there is a 60 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms Sunday and a cold front should drop high temperatures into the 50s by Monday.

Temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 30s Tuesday morning.
