Remember the chilly mornings on Saturday and Sunday?

They’ll be back as a cold front arrives Monday afternoon, dropping temperatures back into the 40s on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

The front will also bring a slight chance of rain for Tarrant County: Forecasters are calling for a 20 percent chance of moisture Monday afternoon.

“We could see small isolated showers in our area,” said meteorologist Mark Fox of the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth. “Most of the showers will be south of I-20.”

Commuters will wake up Monday to temperatures in the lower 50s, slight south wind and highs in the upper 60s. But once the front arrives, north winds could gust at 20-25 mph.

North Texans will need a jacket Tuesday morning for temperatures in the mid-40s, forecasters say. Lows Wednesday morning will be in the upper 40s.

Highs for the week will be in the 70s.

After Monday, the next chance of rain will be over the weekend, forecasters say. Another cold front is expected to arrive then with chances of showers and thunderstorms.
