Summer temperatures keep hanging on, but today is the first day of fall.
Temperatures are expected to start to match the season next week, with highs in the mid 60s Monday and lows in the upper 50s Tuesday morning, said Jamie Gudmestad, National Weather Service meteorologist in Fort Worth.
“We are getting closer to fall weather,” Gudmestad said. But temperatures will stay in the mid to lower 90s until Sunday, when highs drop to the lower 80s and lows to the lower 60s with a 60 to 70 percent chance for rain.
Current temperatures are five to 10 degrees higher than normal for this time of year, she said. The Weather Service expects temperatures to stay in the fall-like range after Wednesday next week.
