Weak cold front will knock edge off DFW's summerlike temps

Say goodbye to summer's heat, at least Tuesday through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Bright sunny days and cooler temperatures are in the forecast, thanks to a weak Canadian cold front that on Monday was edging into Texas from the northern plains.

The pulse of cooler weather is expected to replace the summertime heat that has dominated the start of Fall in the Metroplex.

Monday was expected to be around 88 degrees, according to the weather service.

But high temperatures during the rest of the week will range from the mid to low 80s, said Stacie Hanes, a weather service meteorologist.

The cold front on Monday was in Central Oklahoma and moving south, Hanes said.

"It will knock temperatures down 3 to 5 degrees," she said. "The lows will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s, once the front comes through."

But while the region gets a break from the heat, people concerned out their lawns may have to keep watering them. There's no rain in the forecast.

"We might get another front early next week with some precipitation," Hanes said, "but we'll have to wait and see how that develops."
