FORT WORTH — The fall season arrived in North Texas on Sunday afternoon, but residents shouldn’t be scrambling for sweaters.Officially, autumn came to North Texas at 3:44 p.m. Sunday, which means from here on out temperatures begin to drop and the days get shorter than the nights. For those keeping records, daylight saving time ends on Sunday, Nov. 3, when residents move the clock back.High temperatures for this time of year are 86 to 87 degrees, according to the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth, and Sunday’s high was a very comfortable 83 degrees. Residents could see the mid-80s on Monday.“We’ll probably see high temperatures in the 90s after Monday and a dry week,” said meteorologist Eric Martello of the NWS office in Fort Worth.After Monday, high temperatures will be about 91 or 92 and North Texans will wake up to temperatures in the low 70s.But rain chances return to the DFW area Friday night when the area has a 20 percent chance of showers. Forecasters give North Texas a 30 percent chance on Saturday.High temperatures will drop a few degrees on Sunday when the NWS says North Texas will be in the mid-80s under sunny skies.
