A sustained wind at 30 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 mph will continue through the day. Temperatures will hold in the low to mid-thirties, with wind chills in the teens.

DFW will be in the low seventies by Tuesday.

Temperatures on Saturday will stay steady in the low to mid-30s. Wind chills will be in the teens!! Clouds will also increase behind the front and wind gusts will be as high as 50 to 55 mph during the day!! A Wind Advisory is an effect.

Something else that may occur… snow flurries! It's not out of the question that we'll see some snow flying around here in DFW during the afternoon into the early evening hours. No accumulations are expected at this time, but radar trends need to be watched, especially east of Dallas into northeast Texas. Here, an inch or 2 could fall in some isolated areas.

Skies will clear overnight into Sunday morning as temperatures fall into the low to mid twenties. Wind chills will be in the teens.

The wind will slowly relax on Sunday with plenty of sunshine. Afternoon highs will struggle the hit 50 degrees.

Plenty of sunshine will dominate our weather through the middle of next week. After a light freeze Monday morning, temperatures will rebound into the low 60s. Low 70s will be the rule on Tuesday with plenty of sunshine.
