Even though October arrives on Tuesday, the Dallas-Fort Worth area hasn’t seen the last of 90-degree temperatures.

After reaching the mid-80s on Monday, temperatures are expected to climb into the lower 90s by Thursday. But it won’t last long.

A cold front is expected to arrive Friday, knocking high temperatures back into the low 80s — and lows into the mid 50s by Sunday morning. Some areas outside of Tarrant and Dallas counties could see lows in the upper 40s.

There will also be several chances of rain later this week but forecasters don’t believe it will do much to ease the ongoing drought. Last weekend’s rains brought between a quarter of an inch to an inch across the Metroplex.

National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Dunn said it doesn’t mean fall is here to stay but it will bring North Texas “a little taste of it.”

The arrival of October also means cold fronts will start blowing through the area every few days.

“The pattern is starting to change,” Dunn said. “We are going to start seeing fronts every few days starting next week.”
