Chances are good that North Texans will need summer shorts and sandals for a few days.

Forecasters are calling for unseasonably warm weather until at least Wednesday. North Texans would normally be enjoying temperatures in the high 70s during these October days, but instead the highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s for several days.

The high could reach 91 on Monday. The record high for Oct. 17 is 95 degrees, set in 1972, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth.

The highs on Tuesday and Wednesday should be in the upper 80s.

“It’s also going to be dry,” meteorologist Juan Hernandez said Sunday. “But a cold front will be here Wednesday evening and that will bring cooler temperatures and some chances of rain.”

Tarrant County residents will see a 30 percent chance of showers or thunderstorms Wednesday night and a 20 percent chance Thursday morning.

The daytime high for Thursday will be 72 degrees, followed by Friday morning temperatures in the lower 50s and a high of 69.

Next weekend, forecasters said, it should be dry with temperatures in the mid-70s.
