If you can wait another "48 hours", the weather will drastically improve.

As of a few days ago, we hadn't seen a drop of rain in October. That's quickly changing this morning as waves of chilly rain with thunder will continue to move across the area. Rain should taper off this afternoon and some areas might even see some brief sunshine right before sunset.

Temperatures will pretty much hold steady in the low to mid forties all day long.

It'll stay cloudy, windy and chilly tonight, with lows hovering around 40゚. There will also be area of "drizzle fo' shizzle".

As this powerful storm system works its way across the Red River Valley tomorrow, we will get what's called "wrap-around moisture" invading north Texas. I expect the clouds to linger around all day long, with some intermittent drizzle or light rain. Wind will be gusty from the north and temperatures will have a hard time hitting 50.

After the "1st 48 hours", our weather will improve drastically, but it will stay on the cool side with below normal temperatures through the weekend and into early next week. Ample sunshine will greet you each day from Friday, through Halloween weekend and through most of next week.

High temperatures will be in the sixties with morning lows in the forties.
