A summer cold front is headed to Dallas-Fort Worth

North Texas is expected to get a most unusual summer gift in coming days: relief from searing heat.

A summer cold front from the northwest is moving through dallas-Fort Worth on Friday, dropping the high to 93 degrees with a chance of scattered showers. The front will likely stall, keeping Saturday’s high at 92. And yes, that counts as a cold front in Texas in July.

“It’s considered an atypical summer cold front,” said Patricia Sanchez, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. “We’ll have cooler weather and cloudy skies.”

Early next week, Hurricane Beryl will keep temperatures low in North Texas. Beginning Tuesday and lasting through the week, temperatures are expected to only reach the upper 80s, a reprieve from the typical 90s or triple digits.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are also likely, Sanchez said. More seasonal temperatures are expected to return by next weekend.

The forecast could still shift depending on Beryl’s path. The hurricane made landfall on Mexico’s coast near the resort of Tulum as a Category 2 storm early Friday. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said that Beryl is expected to rapidly weaken to a tropical storm as it crosses over the Yucatan Peninsula before it re-emerges into the Gulf of Mexico and likely regains hurricane strength.

Beryl could still move on a path closer along the Gulf Coast, meteorologists warned.

The potential path along the Gulf Coast prompted Gov. Greg Abbott this week to direct state emergency response councils to prepare for the potential impacts from the storm, which could be felt as early as Sunday.

“Texas stands ready to deploy all available resources and support to our coastal communities as Hurricane Beryl approaches the state,” Abbott said in a news release.
