By the time most North Texans head home from work, it should be cool and breezy outside.

A cold front was moving across the area Monday, with winds gusting as high as 20 mph behind it. That should drop temperatures to around 60 late in the day and into the low 40s by Tuesday morning, according to the latest National Weather Service forecast.

Most of the rain will stay east and south of the DFW area, but a shower or two is possible until about 9 p.m., forecasters say.

Both the chance of rain and the cool weather won’t last.

Temperatures are expected to climb back to the mid-70s by Tuesday afternoon, and the weather should be near-perfect all week, with highs in the 70s.

“It really looks like normal weather for pretty much the entire week,” said weather service meteorologist Matt Bishop in Fort Worth. “There really won’t be much to complain about.”
