North Texas can expect much cooler weather this weekend

On Sunday, it almost felt like summer with a record-tying high of 87 degrees, but by next weekend it may feel more like winter with highs expected to reach only the mid-40s.

Before that next strong cold front arrives Friday, it will actually feel about normal for November with highs in the 60s and 70s after a weaker cold front passed through the area.

“The warmest day this week will be Thursday with highs in the mid-70s,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Jamie Gudmestad. “But next weekend is going to be cloudy and cold.”

The cold front later this week will also bring a chance of rain from Thursday through Sunday. Right now, the best chance of rain appears to be on Friday when there could be some thunderstorms.

But no record-breaking high temperatures appear to be coming anytime soon.

Sunday’s high of 87 came about 2 p.m., tying a record that was set in 1938 and was two degrees short of the hottest temperature for the entire month of November that was set on Nov. 6, 1989; Nov. 14, 1989; and Nov. 22, 1955. Waco’s high of 89 degrees on Sunday broke the previous record high for that date that was set in 1938 and in 1986.
