Make sure the kids wear their jackets as they leave the house this morning because a cold front is expected sometime after 8 a.m., sending temperatures into the low 50s, according to the National Weather Service.

There’s a 50 percent chance of thunderstorms before noon, but the front should push the clouds away. But north winds will make it feel colder than the mercury shows.

“We might reach 65 on Wednesday, but the wind chill will be a factor,” meteorologist Joe Harris said at the weather service office in Fort Worth. “You’re going to feel the change in temperatures.”

On Tuesday, the high was 69 at 2:13 p.m., up from the low of 61 recorded about 1:30 a.m., according to the weather service.

Light rain off and on all day led to an official reading of 0.23 inch by about 6 p.m. at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport. The rain was expected to continue overnight.

On Thursday, an overnight low in the mid-40s is possible in Tarrant County. In the Denton and McKinney areas, temperatures might be in the upper 30s.

But during the days, we should have pleasant autumn weather. Mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s are forecast for Thursday through the weekend.
