The "KITCHEN SINK" gets thrown at us this weekend...from warmth and humidity...to storms...to wind and cool sunshine.

Today is a transition day. Mostly cloudy skies with increasing SE winds mean more humidity. Showers will stream up for our EASTERN counties, however most areas from the Metroplex west won't see much this morning, and may just see a few pop-up showers or rumbles this afternoon. Highs range from low 80s Metro/west to the upper 70s in the thicker cloud cover east.

Any showers dry up quickly this evening and a warm, humid night is in store with lows near 70.
Saturday starts gray and muggy...then turns windy and warm. Mid 80s and humid PM. If there are any showers, they would be east of Dallas (20%).

Saturday night there is a strong cold front that will plow in from the NW. Time frame is 10pm NW to midnight and after Metro and east. Risk for severe weather does exist in the form of damaging wind gusts.

Any showers exit early east Sunday and skies will clear most areas by noon. Windy and cooler in the mid 70s.
Monday warms up quickly into the low 80s, before the next WINDY cold front Tuesday. That will find us back in the low 70s.

After a chilly start Wednesday, we will now head back UP instead of down...70s Wednesday and 80s Thursday ahead of the next strong cold front.
