North Texans should enjoy a true blast of fall this week.
A cold front that is expected to sweep into the area by mid-day Wednesday should drop daytime highs into the 60s and nighttime lows into the mid-40s, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.
“Temperatures could get into the 70s Wednesday morning and then start to fall throughout the day,” said Troy Marshall, a meteorological technician for the weather service.
A solid breeze and a 30 percent chance of rain Wednesday could make things feel even chillier.
High temperatures are expected to remain in the 60s until Friday, then return to the 70s on the weekend.
October temperatures have been above normal so far in 2008, Marshall said. Only one day -- Oct. 16 -- has topped out below 70 degrees. And the high on that day was 69.
