After lingering summer weather, we deserve this: Saturday’s high of about 75 will be reached in the morning in western portions of North Texas.And then it will get cooler, thanks to a cold front that’s also expected to kick up rain chances to about 50 percent, according to the National Weather Service.“The high of the day, as the front goes through, will be in the early morning in our western areas,” said Joe Harris, a meteorologist in the weather service’s Fort Worth office. “Temperatures will basically be falling during the day, and pretty steady through early afternoon.”The highs could range from the high 60s to the mid-70s across the region.“Around sundown, it probably will be about 60,” he said. “Overnight lows will be in the lower 50s.”Rain chances Saturday will be best from about 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. as the front pushes through and gives lift to the moist Gulf air deposited by southerly winds in North Texas over the past couple of days.There could be another shot for rain behind the front, but the chances will dip to 30 percent, Harris said.Sunday is expected to be sunny and in the high 70s. After that, cloudless skies will prevail through the middle of next week with temperatures in the mid 80s, according to the weather service.
