North Texas set record high ahead of cool front
Burleson residents awoke Saturday to conditions that almost didn't feel like summer.
An afternoon and evening cool front and storm system significantly dropped temperatures, and the National Weather Service predicts temperatures could continue to fall throughout the weekend.
The previous two days were record-setting in North Texas. On Thursday, the minimum daily temperature of 83 degrees tied a daily record set in 2008 and 2011. The mercury rose to 107 degrees Friday, breaking a 17-year-old daily record set at 106 degrees in 1999.
Then the cool front blew in and 0.82 inches of rain was recorded Friday at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. It was the first time since July 24 that any measurable precipitation had been recorded.
The National Weather Service predicted a Saturday high temperature of 95 degrees, with highs falling to 90 degrees Sunday and into the upper 80s Monday and Tuesday.
