‘Tis the season for getting a deal!  Sure seems like Christmas is coming earlier every year, but this weekend stores are already trying to lure you indoors with deals on toys and everything else.  Well, bundle up as you wait to bust down their doors because Saturday morning temperatures will be in the upper 30’s to low 40’s.  And, the wind will be gusty!

 

A front is expected to push into north Texas Friday afternoon and bring us wind and cold air.

Friday night—upper 50’s and low 60’s, northwest wind 15-25mph

Saturday morning—low 40’s/upper 30’s with gusty Northwest winds.

Saturday afternoon—Sunny, lighter wind and temperatures in the low 60’s

A great fall day with cool temperatures and sunny skies, but it is also dry and windy.  These conditions could help to create grass fires especially in the afternoon today.

Click here for the statement from the National Weather Service about the high fire danger.

Now let’s talk about Fido and those new mums you may of just planted.  Overnight, the temperatures will drop into the low 30’s close to freezing in some of the suburbs and rural areas.  Dallas and Tarrant counties are not under a freeze warning, but counties to the north, west and east are expecting a light freeze.

Here’s more from NWS.  http://www.srh.noaa.gov/fwd/productview.php?pil=FWDNPWFWD&version=0&max=61

Frost on the Pumpkins

You may want to set aside sometime today to prepare your plants and pets for another cold night.  A frost advisory has been issued for many places in North Texas for early tomorrow morning.  Click here to read more.

We are not expected to have a freeze tonight with the air temperature staying above 32 degrees, but the dew point temperature in some spots will drop to 32 or lower.  The dew point measures the amount of moisture in the air.  The dew point being so low aides in frost forming on solid surfaces, such as leaves and plants.  Frost may not be a problem tonight for downtown Fort Worth or Dallas, but some of the suburbs and many rural areas are expected to experience frost.

Which witch?

I do love fall, but sometimes I dread asking my kids what they want to be for Halloween.  This year I brought in reinforcements to help with the process of buying a costume.  My husband and I took our girls to our local costume store and went straight to the kids department to take care of business.  My six year old had been talking about being a witch for a few weeks now, so when we got to the wall of witches we asked her which one do you want to be?   About an hour later her decision was made.  The choices were overwhelming.  There’s the plain witch, the candy corn one, the fairy witch, the one where you look like a ballerina, the pumpkin witch, the fashion witch and finally the winner, the one she choose was the witch that had a skirt with fiber optic lights all over. 

Why am I writing about my kids on a weather blog?  Well, this is where my four year old comes in.  For Halloween, she wanted to be a monkey(actually, it was a giant, but I talked the pint size kid out of that one!).  But, the monkey costumes were covered in head-to-toe fake fur.  Knowing my luck, the weather would be too warm and she would fight me about not wanting to wear it.  So, I checked on the climate for Halloween.  Normal values are 72 for a high to 51 for a low.  But, who or what is normal these days?  The hottest it has ever been was 89 degrees and the coldest was 29.  So, if we look at the past to gauge the future, we could come up with temperatures dropping into the low 60’s to upper 50’s for trick or treating. 

By the way, my four year old decided on the patchwork witch costume.

Do you have any cute costumes?  We would love to see some pictures

It’s Fall Ya’ll.

Fair weather for the State Fair— Sunny & Warm for Saturday and Sunday.

McKinney Oktoberfest—-Sunny Saturday with a high of 90.

Fort Worth Home & Garden Show—Sunny & Warm, but 72 degrees inside the convention center.

Triathlon at Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney—Sunday morning will be nice and somewhat cool with temps in low to mid 60’s.

Greek Food Festival in Dallas—Dry weather for all the dancing and eating.

The Big Orange Pumpkin Farm in Celina—great pickin’ weather for the opening on Saturday.

This weekend marks the official end to summer with the autumnal equinox starting at 12:44pm local time on Monday.  It will be a nice end to the season with average temperatures and dry weather.  We can expect a sunny start to Saturday with a few clouds by the afternoon.  A weak disturbance will pass to the north of us and could bring an isolated shower to our eastern counties.  The rain chance for Paris and Mt. Pleasant is a little bit higher at 20%. Sunday brings us plenty of sunshine and temperatures both days should be in the upper 80’s.  Morning temperatures will not be as cool this weekend as they have this past week.

There will be lots of ways to take advantage of this nice warm weather.  You may want to head to Addison and take in Oktoberfest.  I may actually try to take my girls to Plano to see all the hot air balloons.  Enjoy!
