The cold front that moved into North Texas on Thursday evening should make for pleasant Halloween outings, but early Saturday, finally, for the first time this fall, the low temperature may drop into the 30s.
To 38, to be precise.
There may even be patches of frost in the northern and western areas of North Texas from Alliance Airport north through Denton and McKinney.
“You will feel the front when it gets here,” said meteorologist Lamont Bain at the National Weather Service office in Fort Worth.
Never miss a local story.
The daytime high today will be in mid-60s, but the temperature could drop into the 50s after dark.
“It looks like we will have a pretty nice time for trick-or-treating,” meteorologist Jesse Moore said. “But it will get a little cool, so kids will need their jackets.”
Another front will arrive Monday that may bring a 60 percent chance of rain at night, rising to 70 percent on Tuesday.
