Windy cold front brings warning of fire danger in North Texas

A cold front with strong gusty winds will dip into North Texas on Sunday increasing the fire danger in areas that have seen little precipitation.

With gusts up to 35 miles per hour, it may feel a little brisker than the mid-50s high forecast for Sunday, with the overnight low dropping to about 37, according to the National Weather Service.

The first few days of December promise mostly sunny skies and mild temperatures, with daytime highs approaching the 60-degree mark and nights at or just below 40. Winds will pick up again Monday night and Tuesday, this time out of the south, pushing daytime highs to the low 70s on Tuesday, the weather service says.

Meteorologist Steven Fano says there's a very slight chance of light rain in the region by Wednesday, but otherwise he says there's no rain in the 10-day forecast.

The official rainfall total for November is 4.53 inches and for the year 26.83 inches, the latter figure five inches less than normal and almost 21 inches less than in soggy 2007.
