The last gasp of the unusually cool weather that greeted May in North Texas should be long-gone by Monday afternoon when temperatures reach the upper 70s and climb back into the mid-80s on Tuesday.

The cool weather was still present Monday in some parts of Texas. While DFW Airport didn’t set a record with a low of 50 degrees, Waco set a record for the fourth day in a row with a low of 42, breaking the previous record of 46 set in 1991.

But no more cold snaps, as experienced almost weekly throughout April and into May, appear to be on the way, though high temperatures are expected to drop back into the 70s by Sunday.

“We should be in the lower or mid-80s most of this week,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Jamie Gudmestad. “We’re getting closer to hitting a summer pattern.”

Another chance of rain returns Wednesday and there should be a chance of rain through the weekend. But right now, no soakers appear to be coming.

“As far as amounts go, it looks like it’s going to be pretty light,” Gudmestad said.
